internet do not harms teenage brains

Regarding the fears raised that heavy use of the internet can re-wire teenage brains, according to University College London expert ‘No evidence‘ was found that the internet harms young minds.

Kathryn Mills, a neuroscientist PhD student at University College London, looked at evidence from 135 previous studies focusing on ‘typical’ internet usage and she points out that the right research to answer the question has not yet been conducted.

UCL expert Kathryn Mills said: ‘There is currently no evidence to suggest that internet use has or has not had a profound effect on brain development.’ Previous studies have used MRI scans to study brain activity in online ‘addicts’.
