Title: Internet ‘may be changing brains’
Source: BBC News, October 19, 2011, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-15353397
Who: The Internet and social networking sites
What: More than 100 university students brains were scanned. Some researchers think that the Internet may be increasing the amount of grey matter in people’s brains. They also think that teens may be making more friends in the virtual world than in the real world.
When: Currently and ongoing.
Where: The students brains who were scanned are from London, but this is happening all over the world.
Why do we care: We care because we want to have a healthy brain. We also want to monitor how long we are on the Internet so these kinds of things won’t happen to us.
