Addiction to smartphones in teenagers can lead to an imbalance in brain chemistry that triggers depression and anxiety

'With the average age for a child to get their first phone now just 10, young people are becoming more and more reliant on their smartphones.

And a worrying new study suggests that this dependence on the technology could even be affecting some teens' brains.

The findings reveals that teenagers who are addicted to their smartphones are more likely to suffer from mental disorders, including depression and anxiety.

Researchers from Korea University in Seoul have found an imbalance in the brain chemistry of young people addicted to smartphones and the internet.

In the study, the researchers took brain scans of 19 young people diagnosed with internet or smartphone addiction, and compared them to 19 healthy controls.

Twelve of the addicted participants received nine weeks of cognitive behavioural therapy. Participants also completed tests to measure the severity of their addiction.

Professor Hyung Suk Seo, lead author of the study, said: 'The higher the score, the more severe the addiction.'

The results showed that the addicted teenagers had significantly higher scores in depression, anxiety, insomnia severity and impulsivity than the controls.'
