This is your brain online:  Recent research indicates that the widespread use of digital technology has a measurable, negative impact on the development of the brain, resulting in significant changes in sleep, mood, concentration, memory and learning, as well as behaviors such as risk-taking and aggression.

SCIENCE LUNCH TIME TUTORING
