The Bradley University recently did research and studies to help prove that technology affects mental health. This evidence they have found is compatible with Fahrenheit 451. Both texts show and prove that mental health is negatively impacts people when devices are used excessively. What I found as the prominent theme and topic within the Bradley University studies is they talked about how mentally technology can be addictive and people can experience withdrawals. As said that technology is “connected with the development of mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression in some individuals as Pantic noted”. Another study they found showed that “internet addiction can be problematic because it can negatively impact academic success and one’s ability to communicate effectively in person”. So as said in Bradley’s studies people are losing connection with each other and experience depression and anxiety when electronics are excessively used. Overall the text suggests that in moderation technology can be helpful but if abused technology can become addictive. In the book Fahrenheit 451 the wife of Montag experiences addiction to electronics and wants more and more of it but is forgetful and depressed. She ends up taking to many pills and almost killing herself. Her addiction is shown within the quote “And in her ears the little Seashells, the thimble radios tamped tight”(10). The context of the quote shown can be translated into a deeper meaning. The “little Seashells” are electronics and the “radios tampered tight” is her addiction and unwillingness to let go of her devices. So in conclusion devices can be helpful but also can be abused and turned into something dangerously addictive and give anxiety/depression.
