Addiction of smartphone makes you smarter.....seriously??

Even though smartphones cannot make you to become smarter, a team of Swiss scientists have discovered that the utilization of a device with touchscreen would improve one portion of the brain which has involvement with touch processing.

According to research published in the Biology journal, the Swiss researchers showed that individuals making use of smartphones enhanced their somatosensory cortex. 

Already, scientists know about the malleable nature of the human brain, which means that our actions could remarkably change the way our brains and the rest of our body works. This is why engaging in piano practice could for instance change the working of our brain.
Fresh research is now suggesting that through the use of a smartphone with touchscreen especially, could have an effect in the brain as well. This is true even if an individual is simply scrolling through CNN Online.
The team members, who over a period of 10 days oversaw 37 volunteers, studied 26 of them who used phones with touchscreen and 11 who were making do with cellphones which were old. They were then subjected to an EEG (electroencephalogram) which made documentation of the brain’s voltage changes. Responses which are strong were given out by their thumbs which were then sent to the middle and index fingers.

According to the study, the utilization of electroencephalography assisted the team in making assessments of the cortical potentials in reacting to the mechanical feel on the middle, index, and thumb fingertips of users of touchscreen phones in addition to non-users, who were depending on the technology of old mobile phones.

The study discovered that the brain’s processing of the cortical sensory was caused by personal digital tech. How fast the brain of a user could change depended on how quick their exposure on the screen would be.
Brain Boosting Dr. Arko Ghosh
Arko Ghosh a neuroscientist at the University of Zurich and the lead investigator of the study stated that in time the closer the people were to their peak or highest usage the more activity in the brain was associated with their thumb.
Sensitivity to the routine changes in the phone’s usage was made by the thumb. The team drew conclusions that with increased activity by the brain in a relative and short period since the previous intensive use of the touchscreen of the smartphone, continuous interaction of the smartphone and the fingers could result in the sensory processing capabilities to be driven.
According to, this can be changed in addition to the use of the phone. This appears to show that the brain was being impacted by personal digital technology.
