As Dr

As Dr. Greenfield has noted in his paper, Virtual Addiction: Sometimes New Technology Can Create New Problems, “The Internet and other digital technologies are only the latest in a series of “improvements” to our world which may have unintended negative effects… technology is amoral; it is not inherently good or evil, but it is impact on the manner in which we live our lives”. According to Greenfield’s recent study, large amounts of dopamine are released into the brain while playing video games, and if those games are taken away from the addicted player, they can “often show behavioural problems, withdrawal symptoms, even aggression” (Paturel, 2014).
