The researchers found that gray matter volume (GMV) in certain key parts of the brain of smartphone addicts was decreasing, and that a decrease in gray matter in the left frontal lobe, lower temporal lobe and hippocampus cortex was thought to be associated with substance addiction.

The researchers believe this phenomenon is mainly due to the decreasing brain activity of smartphone addicts.

The researchers questioned the innocuous nature of smartphones through their research. They believe that the popularity of smartphones is now increasing, and more and more teenagers are starting to use them for long periods of time. Therefore, the addictive behavior of smartphones should be paid more attention and attention to.
