Children ages 9 and 10 who spent at least seven hours on screens daily had early thinning of the cortex in MRI scans, and those with more than two hours of daily screen time had lower language and thinking test scores, compared with those with shorter daily screen times, according to an ongoing NIH study. However, further study is needed to determine the association between prolonged screen times and premature cortex thinning in youths, as well as any related outcomes. The study will follow 11,000 children for 10 years to see how prolonged screen time affects the brain. CBS News (12/9)
