  • Due to the advent of new smart devices, the new technology addiction problems have been much severer than the Internet addiction recently. A lot of research about each technology addiction has been proposed, but the research about the changes in the addictions has been rare.

In addition, we get the relative importances among the factors which influence on the Internet and mobile phone addictions. As a result, we can analyze the relationships among the factors and the differences between the two addictions with time perspective. In order to achieve our goals, we surveyed on 1,420 primary and secondary school students. We also provided the results produced by structural equation model and Budescu's Dominance analysis. Based on these analyses, we described the differences between the Internet and mobile phone addictions and proposed an alternative to prevent new technology addictions.

  • The purpose of this study was to analyze the EEG according to the elderly's tendency to be addicted to smartphone games. We compared the effects of smartphone addiction on mental health such as brain waves, sleep problems and depression through comparative analysis of asymmetry and connectivity in quantitative EEG results. The study participants were two elderly people who were addicted to smartphone game and one elderly person who did not use smartphone (Ed- to confirm: only 3 participants?!). The participant's addiction tendency of smartphone was measured by using the smartphone addiction scale and EEG (QEEG) was used for EEG analysis. The results are as follows. First, the brain waves of elderly people and smartphone non-user elderly who showed symptoms of immersion and smartphone game showed a difference in asymmetry in both opening and closing anisles. Second, there were significant differences in the openness and the anxiety of the elderly who were immersed in the mobile phone and the elderly who did not use the smartphone. Through this, it is also meaningful to explore the relationship between senile cognitive impairment and smartphone use by exploring the effect of smartphone game use on brain cognitive function through comparison of EEG analysis.
