While in Mexico it continues to cause infections 6th wave of COVID-19An investigation revealed that young brain evaluated after completion Imprisonment For this EpidemicObviously got old A few years longer than adolescent brains assessed before onset Disease,
What could be causing the aging of the young brain?
studyshown on the unamglobal.unam.mx portal, which states that Tension caused by factors related to Epidemicphysically altered young brainwhich apparently got old brain structure.
Is there a known precedent?
according to Researchquick change in brain aging seen only in children who suffered old adversitiesAs:
study ,Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health and brain maturation in adolescentsFeatured in the December 1, 2022 issue of Biological Psychiatry: Global Open Science,
According to Ian Gottlieb, Professor of Psychology in the school of science and humanities Stanford Universityand lead author of the study, it was known that Epidemic had a negative impact on mental health of teenagersbut what was not happening in it Brain,
As we age, natural changes occur in the body brain structureBut during puberty and early adolescence, the body of youths experience a Developmentin both sea horse as in amygdalaarea of Brain which respectively control access to some Memento and modify feelings, Also, the cortex tissueAn area involved in executive functioning becomes thinner.
What studies led to such a conclusion?
by comparing images of magnetic resonancefrom a group of 163 children and adolescents taken before and during Epidemicloss researchers found that the development of this process has accelerated teenagers as they experienced lockdownwhich can affect vision, commented at the time UNAM,
Meanwhile, for researchers It is unclear whether the changes are permanent young brain affected, or if at any time your chronological age will catch up and catch up with your brain got old,
What does it mean for a 16 year old boy that his brain is aging prematurely?
Whereas World Health Organization ,OMS) expects Epidemic of COVID-19 end soon Gottlieb explained that his study was not designed to be discovered effects of the disease On brain structure, but compared to teenagers rated before Epidemiclol after the end of the teens lockdownby the above virusthey not only had mental problems more severe, but also had reduced cortical thicknessthey were big sea horse And this amygdala even more advanced brain age,
These findings could have very important implications in other longitudinal studies that were created during Epidemicbecause if children one who experienced it shows rapid development in their Brainloss researchers have to consider abnormal growth in any Research Involving this generation.
Such discoveries are likely to have very serious consequences for a later generation of teenagers.
