Hello Muhammad Ikhsan, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
PFC or Pre frontal cortex is a part of the brain located behind the forehead that has the function to regulate understanding, logic, concentration, planning, and one's critical attitude in responding to something. And if there is damage to the PFC or damage to the brain cortex will be at risk of causing sequelae and resulting in the inability or decline in human reason.
Addiction to pornography can indeed have a negative impact on physical, mental and social health, especially if done in excess. Mentioned in a study, that someone who often watches pornography and perform sexual activities themselves such as masturbation has a risk of atrophy or shrinkage or shrinkage of the forebrain. Which later this condition can trigger the emergence of a condition called frontal lobe syndrome which causes complaints in the form of attitude changes, such as impulsive behavior, compulsive behavior, mood swings, difficulty concentrating and becomes difficult when making decisions.
And in principle, the dredging of nerve cell seals including the brain is usually permanent and will be difficult to recover as before. Likewise with the trophy or reduction or shrinkage of the brain certainly can not return to normal and can cause permanent neglect.
If the complaint occurs then it is necessary to consult a psychiatrist specialist for further treatment. But apart from the fact that pornography addiction has many bad effects, before there are complications that do not chill like PFC atrophy this should avoid the adverse effects of the addiction of the ponography. and useful, such as activities with family, or exercising regularly.
