Smartphones are so deeply rooted in our lives that changed the form and function of our brain. This is evidenced by the results of studies of Swiss scientists.

Experts have found that people who daily use touchscreen phones have increased somatosensory cortex - the area in the center of the brain that controls movement of the fingers. The study found that the more time a person "he uses" your smartphone, the greater the relationship between his brain and limbs.

Neuroscientists at the University of Zurich in Switzerland, studied the effect of mobile phone on human health, say obsession own mobile gadget leads to deformation of the brain. The ability of the human brain to adapt to the new conditions leads to the fact that these changes lead to chronic pain and movement disorders.

It is noticed that smartphones make their owners do unusual man hand movements. We not only find a new use your fingers, but also use them in an unusual way for hours, days and sometimes nights on end.



The Swiss team of researchers within ten days observed 37 volunteers, 27 of whom used the touchscreen, and the rest - traditional phones with physical buttons.

Analysis of brain waves showed physiological changes in the somatosensory cortex of users of modern touchscreen devices. The greatest effect was observed in those who are more likely to use your smartphone.

Scientists note that in contrast to the physical buttons work with touchscreen associated with more complex movements of the fingers. Quick touch the screen make the brain work harder.

Similar changes are observed and musicians. We violin, for example, a brain region associated with the fingers is much larger than that of other professions.

Such changes in the brain can have both positive (increased sensitivity and fast connection between your fingers and brain) and negative (intensive use of the smartphone can be harmful to health).

Researchers warn that the change in shape of the somatosensory area can cause pain, cramps and fatigue of the body. These changes are characterized as "maladaptive".

Scientists plan to conduct additional studies to identify other effects from the use of sensor devices.
