JULY 31, 2017 | Excessive cell phone use may cause anxiety, experts warn
BIOPAC user Nancy A. Cheever, Ph.D. from California State University, Dominguez Hills was featured on Good Morning America. Her study investigated whether spending too much time on your phone may be causing people to feel stress and anxiety. Dr. Cheever hooked up TJ Holmes and two teenage participants to an MP System with GSR and heart rate amplifiers to measure ECG and Electrodermal Activity. The subjects were then interviewed about the physiological aspects of Smartphone addiction.
This is not the only study that Nancy Cheever’s lab has gotten attention for. She was previously featured on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper for her study on how smart phone apps keep us hooked to our phones.
