Infants’ Screen Use Linked to Brain, Cognitive Outcomes

JAMA Network

About The Study: Screen use during infancy may contribute to variations in neural activities implicated in the development of high-order cognitive skills, according to the findings of this study involving 437 children. Further efforts are urgently needed to distinguish the direct association of infant screen use compared with family factors that predispose early screen use on executive function impairments.
