Digital Dementia

I just came across this article on Psychology Today on “Digital Dementia”, a term to describe overuse of digital technology which results in a breakdown of cognitive abilities. Apparently this is really a thing, not only perceived, but observed in studies.

For instance, the article hints that action video gaming has an impact on the volume of different parts of the brain, which in turn are linked to an increased risk of various mental disorders, such as depression and schizophrenia.
