Chong-Yaw Wee and colleagues conducted a study that assessed neural pathways in teenaged participants who underwent extensive testing to ensure they were affected by internet addiction [1]. They discussed how the long range neural connections in these brains were interrupted and noted that similar anomalies occur in people with opioid and cocaine addictions. These conformational changes can interfere with integration processes in the brain. Kai Yuan and colleagues sought to examine the physical properties of the brain that explained compulsory internet usage. Most notably, researchers saw significant losses around the amygdala, the part of the brain responsible for processing of emotion and pleasure. This led the researchers to prove that internet addiction can develop before a person’s cognitive control completely develops during adolescents, contributing to prolonged compulsory internet usage. *
