frustrated Dr. Edward Hallowell "If you don't take your time,
modern life will take it for you." Dr. Richard Restak, M.D. Things to Consider... ...As people came to rely on the written word as a substitute for the knowledge they used to carry inside their heads, they would, in the words of one of the dialogue’s characters, “cease to exercise their memory and become forgetful.”

And because they would be able to “receive a quantity of information without proper instruction,” they would “be thought very knowledgeable when they are for the most part quite ignorant.” They would be “filled with the conceit of wisdom instead of real wisdom.” the easy availability of books would lead to intellectual laziness, making men “less studious” and weakening their minds.

Others argued that cheaply printed books and broadsheets would undermine religious authority,
demean the work of scholars and
scribes, and spread sedition
and debauchery. The Cognitive Costs
situational ADD
decreased reflection and metacognition
impaired working memory
vulnerability to irrelevant, external stimuli
distraction from main message The Socioemotional Costs
anger, snappiness, anxiety
decreased family interaction
generational boundaries Dr. Patricia Greenfield Multiple

and Skill (WM capactity) Dr. Torkel Klingberg, M.D. New technology IS

and our brains fear healthy skepticism Adversity Does SES bear any straightforward
relation to brain development?
Left perisylvian System
Medial temoral System
Prefrontal System "An impoverished and stressful
childhood can diminsh us by equally
concrete physical mechanisms (as drugs),
such as the impact of early life stress on
medial temoral memory ability through
neuroendocrine mechanisms." Why?
somatic factors
limited cognitive stimulation Bioethical Implications Dr. Martha Farah The Bucharest Early Intervention Project
Dr. Charles Nelson, II Findings:
interplay of genetics and experience
importance of sensitive periods for pruning
sensitive periods were observed in language,
attachment, and indiscriminate behavior
improvement is possible "Education and human capital
development are bioethical issues."

Intervention is not only effective,
it is critical. Memory Enhancement Intellectual curiosity IS a motivation and
its link to memory is significant
emotionally salient experiences are
signifcantly more memorable need there is a great need for
more research into online
