Internet addiction (IA) has become a serious society
problem due to the bad influence on the adolescents.
Adolescence is an developmental stage, encompassed by
alterations in physical, psychological, and social
development, and those behavior characteristics of IA
may introduce injuries to teenage development in the
future. Thus, it is critical to understand the
neurobiological mechanisms underlying this disorder.
Although white matter integrity abnormalities have been
reported in IA adolescents, little is known about the
brain structural topological property changes and the
relationship with the IA severity.
