Name of mental disorder when more data collected in brain due to watching overage Videos .

Rethinking video obsession

The average person watches more than 150 hours of video content each year. Greater access to video content has resulted in a surfeit of data being collected in the brain, leading to increased risk for mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. According to University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign researchers, the brain develops at different rates depending on the region. This means that the frontal lobe, which processes information and acts as a control center for the functions of the brain, can be more affected by overuse of video content. A lack of growth in this area can lead to depression, aggression, and impulsivity, a pattern that researchers observed in many of the patients with ASD who took part in the study.

Severe cases of the internet addiction disorder manifest a compulsive need to watch videos online, in some cases even staying up until the early morning hours to do so. This overuse of the internet due to high levels of dopamine release in the brain can cause a number of mental stresses that include depression, anxiety, and social isolation.

As people rely more on the internet for their entertainment, they are exposed to more stimuli throughout the day. Mental health professionals are noticing a connection between over-stimulation and mental wellness. A new study from a team of researchers at Northwestern University in Chicago has found that individuals who watch over-age videos on Youtube had more symptoms of depression and anxiety when compared to those who did not.

Causes

Neuroscience is a relatively new field in the world of medicine. Its development in recent years has yielded a greater understanding of how the brain functions and what happens when there is a malfunction.

In a study by a research team from the University of Cambridge, it was found that people who watch overage videos can cause their neural circuits to weaken. This phenomenon occurs because watching these videos causes an overload on the attention system, which then becomes less responsive to real-world stimuli. This overload causes the brain's neural circuits to become less efficient in processing information, which leads to mental health problems.

The negative effects of watching overage videos are especially evident in people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. People with ADHD are known to have a weakened attention system. A new mental disorder has been coined by the National Institute of Mental Health. This new disorder is called ‘Video Overdose Disorder’ and it is defined as a mental illness that results from watching too many videos and social media content. The recent influx of social media data that people are exposed to on a daily basis, combined with the stress of everyday life, has caused an increase in Video Overdose Disorder.

Diagnosis

The recent increase in the diagnosis of millennials with mental disorders has raised questions about the psychological effects of overage videos.

This past week, it was found that 12% more people aged 18-27 were diagnosed with bipolar disorder than in previous years, many attributing this to the large amount of time spent on social media and playing video games. In 2016, it was found that the number of people diagnosed with PTSD increased by 5% to 2.8 million people.

Around 2015, the number of people diagnosed with depression increased by 22%, with 10.2 million people diagnosed with depression. Brain scans have revealed an increase in the number of violent videos being watched by people. The mental disorder can be called Violent Video Over-exposure Syndrome or VVOS. This discovery has alarmed researchers who are currently trying to pinpoint the causes and effects of this disorder. However, it is likely that there may be more than one cause of the brain change and we still don't know how VVOS is connected to other disorders such as addiction and depression.

Prevention

Can these theories be substantiated? A new study by the University of Illinois found that watching videos over the recommended age of 13 could lead to developing mental disorders. The study examined possible dangers associated with watching age-inappropriate content, because there is no current evidence-based threshold for using this type of explicit content. They found that the brain's frontal lobe develops at different rates than other regions, and that over-stimulation can cause it to stop growing or shrink. When these regions stop developing, they can lead to depression, ADHD, aggression, and impulsivity.

This study highlights that the higher rate of video watching in teens is a cause of later mental disorders, rather than the other way around.

Future research

In the future, as more data is collected about the brain due to overage videos and other digital technology, research can be more accurate and complete. As a result of this, there will be a better understanding of the brain and mental disorders. Studies will be able to provide more insight into how we can treat mental disorders in general and especially for those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
