  • A new and ongoing study from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is testing how screen time affects children’s brains, CBS News reported.
  • When complete, the study will have followed more than 11,000 children for a decade, monitoring how digital screens like smartphones, video games, and tablets are changing the young brain.
  • The first brain scans from the study have been analyzed and found children who spend more than seven hours per day with screens experience “premature thinning of the cortex,” Dr. Gaya Dowling, one of the study’s authors, told CBS News.
  • The study also found that kids who spent more than two hours with screens daily got lower scores on tests about thinking and language topics.

A first-of-its-kind study from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is analyzing how screen time affects children’s brains, CBS News reported. Over the next decade, the study will look at the brains of 11,000 9- and 10-year-olds as they grow up around screens.

“We’ll be able to see not only how much time are they spending, how they perceive it impacting them, but also what are some of the outcomes,” Dr. Gaya Dowling, one of the study’s authors, told CBS News. “And that will get at the question of whether there’s addiction or not.”
