Possible reasons for brain rot[edit | edit source]

Lack of social interaction[edit | edit source]

A study has found that: "Loneliness was significantly associated with lower scores in the composite cognitive score, immediate and delayed recall, verbal fluency, and backward digit span [...] and with a more rapid decline from baseline to follow-up in two out of six cognitive tests. Higher social isolation was associated with lower scores in the composite cognitive score, verbal fluency, and forward digit span [...]. The effect of loneliness and social isolation on cognition remained significant after the exclusion of individuals with depression."[1]

Depression[edit | edit source]
