Digital dementia: technology's ties to memory loss

SOUTH KOREA -

A new study from South Korea, which some believe to be the most digitally-advanced society on Earth, says some South Korean teens are showing signs of digital dementia, another term for short-term memory loss. 

The study blames overusing smartphones and game devices for hampering the balanced development of the brain.
