Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind

iBrain explores how technology’s perpetual march forward has altered the way young minds develop, function, and interpret information. Dr. Gary Small reveals the remarkable brain evolution by the constant presence of new technology, separating the digital natives – those born in the computer age – from the digital immigrants, who discovered computer technology as adults.
Today’s frenetic progress in technology, communications, and lifestyles is evolving the way young brains develop, function, and process information – creating new neural pathways and altering brain activity at a biochemical level. To compete and excel in this age of brain evolution, all of us must adapt, and iBrain elucidates the strategies and tools that we need to enhance our technological, social, and empathic abilities.
