The streaming industry has revolutionized the way in which we consume entertainment. With a vast selection of movies, TV shows, and other content, always available at our fingertips, it is no wonder that we are spending more time – than ever – streaming. But what impact is this having on our brains, and cognitive function?

Research is still emerging, but there is evidence that suggests, that: streaming may be having a number of effects on our brains, including:

  • Reduced attention spans. The constant stream of new content, on streaming platforms, can make it difficult to focus on any one thing—for very long. One study found, that: people who watch too much streaming have shorter attention spans; than those who do not.

  • Impaired memory. Streaming can interfere with our memory. When we are constantly bombarded with new information, it can be difficult to retain what we have seen, or heard. One study found, that: people who watch too much streaming have poorer recall of what they have watched; than those who watch less.

  • Increased impulsivity. The way that streaming platforms are designed, can encourage impulsive behavior. For example: The 'auto-play' feature can keep us watching—even when we do not really want to continue. One study found, that: people who use streaming services more often are more likely to engage in impulsive behaviors—like: gambling, and overeating.

In addition to these negative effects... there is some evidence that suggests, that: streaming may – also – have some positive effects, on our brains. For example: Some studies have shown, that: streaming can improve our creativity, and problem-solving skills. Other studies have shown, that: streaming can help us to learn new things, and improve our memory.

Overall, the research – on the impact of streaming, on the brain – is still in its early stages. However, the available evidence suggests, that: streaming may have a number of – both – positive, and negative, effects on our cognitive function.
