How Screen Addiction Is Hijacking Our Kids--and How to Break the TranceBook - 2016
"In Glow Kids, Dr. Nicholas Kardaras will examine how technology; more specifically, age-inappropriate screen tech, with all of its glowing ubiquity; has profoundly affected the brains of an entire generation. Brain imaging research is showing that stimulating glowing screens are as dopaminergic (dopamine activating) to the brain's pleasure center as sex. And a growing mountain of clinical research correlates screen tech with disorders like ADHD, addiction, anxiety, depression, increased aggression, and even psychosis. Most shocking of all, recent brain imaging studies conclusively show that excessive screen exposure can neurologically damage a young person's developing brain in the same way that cocaine addiction can,"--Amazon.com.
