Do Cell Phones Affect a Child's Brain?

Researchers put an app on kids phones to study the issue.

Researchers in Britain want to know what effect talking and texting may have on a child's developing brain. So for three years, they're tracking the cell phone habits of about 3,000 students  by installing an app on their  phones.
