Mobiles and ADHD

EMR Australia - Saturday, May 28, 2016

Smart phones are contributing to symptoms of ADHD, according to a study from the University of British Columbia.

Scientists asked volunteers to reduce their use of a mobile phone one one occasion and to use their phones as normal on another and then asked them to perform a battery of tests.

They found that the more frequently people were interrupted by their mobile phones, the less attentive they became and the more hyperactive.

The findings have implications for society in general, the researchers suggested, given the large number of phones in use worldwide.
