" In sum, brain imaging studies on IA gaming have collectively found that, as with other addictions, multiple systems and regions involved in reward and executive function are implicated.. . . If devices are left available, point-blank, any intervention, neurotherapy or otherwise, will not work. There will be brief improvements, and then the brain will deregulate once again; educational deficits and behavioral challenges will recur."
