Experts from MIT and Stanford University are now expressing concern with addiction behaviors to this technology, known as FOMO: Fear of Missing Out. Digital toxicity and digital dementia and two new problems, compromising one’s cognitive skills including short term and long term memory, attention span and critical thinking. Insomnia is closely related to this addiction. People today are rewiring their brains for stress through sensory bombardment. This presentation examines the scientific data of “screen addictions“, FOMO, sensory overload as well as the newest research of neuroplasticity; regeneration of brain tissue produced from mindfulness meditation (digital detox).
