Joint research by economics professors Huang Fali of Singapore Management University and Lee Myoung-jae of Korea University investigated the effects of watching television on the cognitive development of children by analysing math and reading scores of children aged 8-9 years, and how these related to their television-watching patterns at 6-7 years of age.
