Summary "In Glow Kids, Dr. Nicholas Kardaras will examine how technologymore specifically, age-inappropriate screen tech, with all of its glowing ubiquityhas profoundly affected the brains of an entire generation. Brain imaging research is showing that stimulating glowing screens are as dopaminergic (dopamine activating) to the brains pleasure center as sex. And a growing mountain of clinical research correlates screen tech with disorders like ADHD, addiction, anxiety, depression, increased aggression, and even psychosis. Most shocking of all, recent brain imaging studies conclusively show that excessive screen exposure can neurologically damage a young persons developing brain in the same way that cocaine addiction can,"
