-- teens to all because the digital technology joining us now is doctor Sandra Chapman from the center for brain brain health and -- Fresh stick -- -- co-founder.
Doctor Chapman wanna start with you on this.
I tell you I think technology the smarter technology becomes the dumber -- bill.
And I -- -- suspect this is that it's harming everyone no matter how old they are.
Mail you're absolutely right right -- me is when people ask me -- technology.
Good or bad.
I say yes.
It's getting its ban let's talk about the bad part because we all know the good stuff but -- my -- start -- itself.
-- year after that I'm gonna forget how to drive.
Well you're right I mean this whole idea about what our technology is getting -- yes.
It's changing our brain moment by moment by everything -- and when you say -- what is the best side -- it.
It's making -- want to -- tax because you have all of this information going constantly our screens coming at.
And we now know from brain science.
But our brain with never wire two DE -- -- that lacks.
So as -- kind of geeky things you're literally breaking down your brain and making yourself.
We -- note that our technology.
Is costing us should be distracted.
Constantly waiting to be distracted.
Says think about being put in safe mode all the time just waiting for -- being to pop up her 7 NEWS to come line.
Right cost and yes is our deeper level thinking is -- here at an all time.
-- you obviously -- fan of technology or I'm -- -- you've studied this aspect of it.
-- find it hard to 22 that the disagree with the doctor well I would say.
-- too much of anything is bad for you obviously but I mean that technology brings us so much I work -- an office.
We're we're spread across the entire world to show right now is running off technology were not for technology.
This would be happening and I think.
This -- -- happening for years people been claiming of with the latest form of entertainment or technology is ruining our brains actually a quote.
That I brought from this from 1891.
This is about -- small reading that the craving for literary -- has caused that corporate brain -- to become too weak for sustained thought.
So this is an 1891 to beat -- and saying this for well over on.
But I don't know back I don't know about you but I mean I know like after while do you put just phone numbers in your phone and just put a name their internal way you forget those phone numbers and it feels like.
I've had people tell me they did in that they can't fellows as well as the use because a spell check.
It felt like it may -- other parts of our brand something's not something that's going on there well the question is how much your brain figured you were taking up with phone numbers and spelling and us.
Value and he did iPad three that's what I'm kidding for her act I think this I don't hurt anybody birthday present.
-- well what this statement that when you multitask and email your IQ drops ten points a secret -- losing a night's sleep were smoking pot yeah I don't have the IQ dropping necessarily obviously if you're doing ten things at once your focus isn't going to be as -- and each and -- -- it's that retaining the information -- -- not using a calculator doing it on your -- -- thirty -- moderation I think yeah.
The way to go but obviously cutting off technology is not the solution center I know what we were talking you probably check your emails and and a few other things.
That we have you back if you heard Russ and from a technology point of view there's no doubt we all know the pluses but.
It does feel like this there's a hidden costs to this and if -- didn't cost -- -- what can we do about it.
Well there's a lot we can do about it because I actually agreement -- that I would never got back I want my technology.
At this whole idea.
I went -- -- young people are middle aged people we're downloading so much information from our technology.
It's literally made us freeze that we can't -- deeper thoughts.
How much information we know is not making this the innovative and strategic thinkers ever going -- completely exhausted.
-- what can you do.
You can definitely avoid multitasking.
We have worked with companies where where that -- young adults starting in the corporation are middle age or older people.
-- nice Scott multitasking.
The level of productivity.
Increase earnings extended chilling -- because they can think deeper.
Okay well this is a topic that will not go away because technology is gonna get better and better and I think somebody get dumber endeavor but you guys are fantastic banks while we appreciate your time.
Our guys you know semi.
