Too Much Porn Can Shrink Brain: Study
Watching sexually explicit videos regularly may cause the brain to shrink and work less effectively , a new study has claimed. The study suggests that the brains of heavy porn users show signs of degradation and shrinkage.
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin found that men who watch a lot of porn tend to have a smaller striatum, an area of the brain "linked to rewards and motivation." They also found that the connection between the striatum and the prefrontal cortex — the part of the brain associated with behaviour and decision making — degraded with increased porn watching, 'The Telegraph' reported.
For the study, sixty-four healthy male adults with a broad range of pornography consumption reported hours of pornography consumption per week. "We found a significant negative association between reported pornography hours per week and gray matter volume in the right caudate," researchers said.
