WBAY-TV did a fairly in-depth story on the dangers of too much technology for kids. UW-Green Bay Assistant Prof. Sawa Senzaki (Psychology, Human Development) provided expertise for the story. “There is not a lot of research yet to tell us how much kids are affected by too much screen time, but she says too much TV for example could cause sleep problems, obesity and attention issues; not to mention the instant gratification we get from technology. ‘Addiction is a really good example. If children get pleasure, dopamine levels in their brain, the active hormones can get stimulated and if they are over stimulated, that’s what they are going to want in the future, it’s then hard to get something less, if you’re always getting that pleasure kind of hormone,'” said Senzaki.
