A child has her brain waves monitored as she uses an iPad during an experiment at Birkbeck University London. The university's 'Baby Lab' is conducting a long term experiment to determine the impact of technology use by toddlers. In their own words they are "studying how 6 month to 3 year old infants are using touchscreen devices and how this use (or lack of use) is influencing their cognitive, brain and social development"
