Curiosity struck me for whatever reason to do some brief research into how computers, televisions, video games, electronics, etc affect the human brain. I just read a couple articles on google so far, but there really hasn't been alot of information thus far in my search. Basically just that using technology makes people's minds more efficient at processing information, but that the constant barrage of information can cause information overload / wire people up / stimulate them too much, making it hard to sleep, especially if the technology is used for a prlonged period of time.
I have been an avid user of technology since I was in my early years, starting with the tv and gameboy and now with using the computer for schoolwork and regular work. Does anyone have any input or interesting articles that look at the effect of technology on people's brains, specifically computers?
Also, these days I seem to get a headache if I'm staring at a screen for a sustained period of time. Is there any connection between headaches and technology use?
