Internet Use & Popcorn Brain

Posted:

(CNN)--Researchers in China say that over time, heavy Internet use can actually physically change the structure of our brains.

One expert says too much time on the web leads to "popcorn brain."

That's when you're so used to the constant stimulation of electronics, you don't know how to deal with the slower pace of life offline.

Tips to avoid it include setting a time-limit on your Internet use and allotting times when you don't use your phone or computer.
