More on net addiction

From Undernews, an article from the Independent:
Hilarie Cash, who heads Internet/Computer Addiction Services in Redmond, near Seattle, has identified a specific chemical rush - a dopamine high - which can be generated by even something as simple as receiving an email. She told The New York Times that she has seen instances of anxiety and depression in her patients.
YES! I was right, it's dopamine. OK, bedtime!


I just saw the film Dopamine  and it was better than I expected. It even won an award from Sloan Foundation for best use of science in a dramatic movie.
