what r the effects on the brain from watching TV?
I am not aware of any scientific research that can answer your question. If you want my opinion, I would tell you that watching TV does not physically injure your brain in any way, if that is what you are asking. With regard to the content of TV, it is my opinion that some can be educational, but most is not. I would recommend reading a good book. Just my opinion...
