Internet effect on the brain - 7 views

  • Noted science-fiction writer Isaac Asimov predicted that one day, we'd "have computer outlets in every home, each of them hooked up to enormous libraries where anyone can ask any question and be given answers, be given reference materials, be something you're interested in knowing, from an early age, however silly it might seem to someone else," and with this appliance, be able to truly enjoy learning instead of being forced to learn mundane facts and figures. His insight has proven to be amazingly accurate, as we now live in a world with the Internet, where nearly the entire wealth of human knowledge can live at our fingertips or even in our pockets.

    Very interesting commentary on how technology effects our physiology. I am struck by the analogy of internet use and addictive bebaviors. There was feature on NPR this morning about how the brains of those that develop addictions differ from those who do not. Perhaps the internet feeds that part of the brain that is prone to addiction. I was also struck by the comment that we rarely give full attention to what we are currently doing.
