    Take a closer look at the multitude of studies (two) that she cited. Half of the researchers were shared between them. Also, there is no conclusive evidence linking any digital media (particularly videogames) and violent tendencies. Many people are under the impression that we live in an incredibly violent time, thanks to constant exposure to overhyped media attention, but this is not true. Statistically, we live in the safest period in human history. Furthermore, videogames have been found to actually improve hand-eye coordination, puzzle solving, memory, and a variety of other cognitive processes. Videogames are actually being used by doctors and psychologists to treat a multitude of conditions.
    About the only thing I would agree with in this video is that people spend too much time on social media and rely too much on the information at their fingertips. I acknowledge this as a simple opinion however, and will not press the point without substantial evidence of negative repercussions upon society.

    Lots of crap here guys, no one into neuroscience wouldn't take this lady seriously. Her conclusions are so far fetched, that not only hard to believe to a critical thinker but also misleading in terms of what the quoted findings actually tell… Unfortunately what's been said here is hardly counter-intuitive, and hence easily absorbed by those prone to easy solutions… One can only wonder, why she's ever allowed to give such speeches.

    Parents need to educate themselves better to not give their kids a poor, dehumanised start by giving them unlimited amount of technology usage….thank you Susan Greenfield.
