For the longest time, we have had the debate on whether cell phones affect peoples cognitive function. As of now, we still do not have the amount of information needed to make a certain stance on if it affects us or not. Some people think that if you are playing games for example, that it can be helpful for your hand eye coordination, but it can also affect our brainwaves or so we think. Overall, we need more information to make a stance.
- The degree to which mobile devices affect cognitive function is currently unknown.
- There is a very small yet growing body of literature that cell phones affect brain activity on a very short-term level.
- More research on mobile devices, gaming, and other new forms of technology are needed to make a solid conclusion about how they are affecting our health.
“It would look suspicious if all the industry studies showed no adverse effects, though, so some have accused the industry of taking obfuscation to a new level.”
