How we develop so we can think, perceive, remember, talk, reason and learn is a central topic in psychology. It is a field that sees constant new research, including the correlation between children and screen time, and how this will affect their future selves.

What really causes ADHD? Is it nature or nurture?

 - 

Through the new science of epigenetics (how genes and the environment interact) we now know that a genetic predisposition to ADHD can be changed—and made better or worse—by a child's experiences. Epigenetics is a fascinating, cutting-edge area of science with major implications for ADHD treatment, as well as many other mental health conditions.
