Is technology changing our brains?
With digital technology so widely accessible, we are constantly using it. But that constant use leaves a feeling of unease with many researchers and human behaviour experts, concerned with how our attention is being captured by devices rather than voluntarily regulated. And yet technology also offers positives such as memory improvement, problem-solving skills and multitasking skills.
“We’re all pawns in a grand experiment to be manipulated by digital stimuli to which no one has given explicit consent” – Richard Davidson, neuroscientist.
