Hyperarousal  is a characteristic of inappropriately and chronically aroused “fight or flight” defense mechanisms. The person is seemingly on permanent alert for threats of danger. Symptoms of hyperarousal include: exaggerated startle responses, anxiety attacks, irritability, outbursts of anger or rage, aggressive behavior, difficulty concentrating, hypervigilence, difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or physiological reactions upon exposure to situations that symbolize or resemble an aspect of the traumatic experience (eg. elevated pulse or sweat during a pelvic exam, or upon hearing a vacuum pump sound.)

“Attention-deficit drugs increase concentration in the short term, which is why they work so well for college students cramming for exams. But when given to children over long periods of time, they neither improve school achievement nor reduce behavior problems. The drugs can also have serious side effects... Many parents who take their children off the drugs find that behavior worsens, which most likely confirms their belief that the drugs work. But the behavior worsens because the children's bodies have become adapted [because the drugs are habit-forming] to the drug. Adults may have similar reactions if they suddenly cut back on coffee, or stop smoking.”

The write up/article definitely makes a point. However, as a student of New Communication Technology, I feel Technology has helped and improved communication immensely in more ways than it’s mentioned in the article. The key importance of communication is proper dissemination of information or news and this has been achievable by the New Communication Technologies. More so, it has helped to strengthen inter-personal communication through chat applications and social media. Through these websites, there’s need for constant and effortless contact with people you know and even new people.
Another advantage is the easy access to information via the Internet. Reporters today even source their articles from the internet. As a matter of fact, you did use a gadget of technology to share this information, didn’t you?
You cannot blame technology for the reasons you have mentioned. You blame what people are doing with technology.

I believe there is a development link that is missed (at some point) when kids spend hours in front of a screen or texting. “Let’s pretend” is a game that requires imagination and if kids miss interacting with other kids pretending to be pirates searching for treasure or building a fort with cardboard boxes they will never know that they can make a difference. Working with other kids building a fort they learn social skills without realizing it. They learn to work together for a common goal. No computer screen can teach or help kids to make that connection.
