Multitasking Is Not Killing Your Brain

Very much looking forward to the mind/multitasking article…

Particularly liked your way of distinguishing effects- Blink, warp, break - and the pianist’s brain :-)

I am intrigued by the knock-on effects of devoting more energy (and the ensuing clean-up and maintenance requirements) to this sort of processing during development,especially with regards to sensory integration of experience,memory,knowledge and empathy/co-regulation - as tech. is a very 2D experience, if cognitively rich. We will only begin to see these and be able to study them from now on…

It seems that a sizeable proportion of people are uncomfortable with this continuous dispersal of attention demand (at least going by the responses to Larry Kim’s piece), regardless of evidence, or not, of negative effects…
