Could The Internet Be Shrinking Your Brain?


Remember how your mother used to tell you that sitting too close to the TV could ruin your vision? She was full of crap. But new research indicates that another one of Mother Dearest's little foibles may turn out to be true after after: too much Internet could rot your brain. Well, kinda. Using a very limited testing group, Chinese researchers have discovered possible evidence that excessive Internet use can actually change physical characteristics inside your head.....

Depends what you use the internet for, funny how they just focused on games. I think the internet is a great tool for acquiring information on a vast range of topics.

Desk Top with Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit and Lap Top with Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit

I'm all in favor of using the electronic gadgets. However, I feel that our kids are using them way too much such as texting, using face-book, email and all the other electronic things. As a result, they are loosing the ability of using the old-fashioned communication of looking at each other in the eye and just simply plain talking. I'm no expert and that's only an opinion of one of the older generation. I'm sure that a lot of the younger will tell me that I'm wrong; and who knows, maybe I am. But that's the way I feel.

I learn a lot of things on the internet. Just today I googled and found out that bright glowing orb in the sky outside is called "The Sun". Didn't say who it's named after though. Sure puts a glare on my screen...

A very unusual brain
Found this in a newsletter and am amazed at the well preserved convolutions in this brain. I have seen quite a few over the years and especially form dementias and they are indeed a sory looking organ compared to this one. Einstein?s brain was unusual in several respects, rarely seen photos...

Is my ISP brain damaged... or is it me?
Earlier tonight I was trying out some apps on Windows 8. As I opened the Maps app, it asked if it could use my internet connection to set up my location; I said OK. It then opened up a map of my "home"... in Helena, Montana! Ummm... I live 2000 miles away in New Jersey. :confused: My Weather app...

Brain Not Working
Damn, it has been a bad night. Bad in the brain just is not functioning. Have attempted to help several posters, and nothing comes to mind as to what they need to do to fix their problem. Hate it when this happens. The sad thing is there is nothing anyone can do to help. Sometimes it is hard...
