Recent studies have shown that young heavy mobile phone users have slower minds and poorer memory capacities in comparison with those who use the mobile phone moderately.  They show slower responses and are also are likely to commit more mistakes.

A study involving a sample of 300 young students aged between 12 and 14 from around 20 private and public schools in Melbourne was conducted to  prove this fact. It was conducted by a team of researchers from Monash University.

Dr. Geza Benke, one of the authors of the report said, “We took into account age, gender, ethnicity and socio-economic status in our research,”.

The outcome of the experiment showed that kids with excessive use of mobile phones were much faster but not as accurate as their counterparts.  According to Dr. Benke, this trend is likely to be manifested in the normal day to day life of the young people and can be translated to their adulthood.
