Non-clinical level internet use, multitasking and the brain
Excessive internet use and related IoT use have been noticed to be health problems in recent years. However, normal level of the usages are not investigated precisely yet.
The influence of these recent life habits on our brain function are reported from the perspective of motivation/ reward and attentional network circuitry assessed by MRI neuroimaging scans. As tentative conclusion, these life habits are considered to be health benefits as far as the level of the engagement is low to intermediate levels.
