Doris Bergen

This commentary reviews changes in the social and play environments of infants and young children related to the pervasiveness of technology-augmented toys and other devices. The author discusses how early brain development, as well as cognitive, social, and emotional development may be affected by this environmental change and suggests that study of this phenomenon be a focus of child development specialists.
