The more advanced technology becomes, the more alluring and addictive it is as well, especially for young developing minds. Dopamine and other neurotransmitter hormones are released in immature brains in ways that are unnatural yet rewarding when they are gaining attention or entertainment from devices. This often leads to concerning behavioral issues and addictions during adulthood.
