How often and how long are you or your kids using technology these days? Experts are warning that young people’s reliance on technology is causing them to forget everyday details such as their phone numbers! Experts say those who rely on technology suffer a deterioration in cognitive abilities more commonly seen in patients who have suffered a head injury or psychiatric illness. Overuse of technology is said to develop the left side of the brain, but leave the right side of the brain underdeveloped, which could lead to an early onset of dementia. Researchers say those at highest risk of problems are between the ages of ten and 19 who use their smartphones for more than seven hours each day. As the phrase goes, use it or lose it. If ever there was a reason to cut back, this is it!
