Technology Affects Minds of All Ages

November 24, 2009

A Nov. 24 Jewish Journal story covered a UCLA study showing that older adults with little Internet experience were able to trigger key centers in the brain that control decision-making and complex reasoning after just one week of surfing the Web. The story also mentions the Technology & Aging Conference, hosted by the UCLA Center on Aging. Dr. Gary Small, the center’s director and also a professor at the Semel Institute and author of “iBrain: Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind,” was quoted.
