As my book Call of the Active Mind emphasizes, the TV effect is not generation-specific. It’s a clinical fact of TV’s damage to brain cell activity, regardless of age group. Anyone in any generation will suffer the same impairments, and have since the 1950s.
Quotes from the article:
“The study found people who watch the most TV are twice as likely to have poor mental functioning.”
“Watching TV for hours impairs your mental ability, according to study.”
“It is one of the first studies to demonstrate that watching too much TV encourages cognitive aging, even before middle age.”
