How Your Travels Around the Internet Expose the Way You Think | WIRED - 0 views

  •  
    "This is what psychologists call "metacognition," thinking about how we think. Trailblazer gave me an x-ray view of my own mental activity. Clicking on random memes triggered a curious search query and-boom-20 pages later I'd find a useful scientific paper. (I'm now more forgiving of falling down a Twitter hole.) Traditional academic citations never capture serendipity, the stumbling, associational nature of how knowledge relates to itself. Trailblazer does."

How Google Is Changing The Way We Think - 0 views

  • According to Small’s research, using a search engine increased activity in the regions of the brain dealing with decision making, complex reasoning and vision. Also, the more-experienced Internet users exhibited more than twice as much brain activity as the less-experienced subjects, leading Small to predict that the more we search, the stronger the brain’s reaction to searching.
  • One influential study, produced by researchers at Columbia, Harvard and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, found that people were less likely to remember a piece of trivia when they had access to the Internet. Instead, they were more likely to remember where the information had been saved.
  • “The Internet has become a primary form of external or transactive memory, where information is stored collectively outside ourselves,” the researchers concluded.

How computers change the way we learn - 0 views

  •  
    "While there's no doubt that information technology can have its downsides for our day-to-day behaviour, there is very little evidence that computers are damaging our brains - any more than writing made us more forgetful. In fact, computers might just make us a bit smarter."
