Officials are only beginning to understand the effects of computers on the human brain. It is becoming clear that regular use of digital devices may be altering the course of human evolution.
For example, these electronic devices distracting to teenagers. Anyone could have guessed that, but impacts their ability to focus and learn. And it is not just teens it affects. Computers can change the way how the adult brain behaves and the ability to focus. It can also make you inpatient and forgetful.
