Researchers Determine Technology Has Spawned “New Brain” Entertainment Creates Evolutionary Leap

December 17, 2012

Technology has changed the way people think, creating “a new brain,” two Italian psychology experts say.

Psychologist Maria Beatrice Togo, who collaborated with psychotherapist Tonino Cantelmi on a new book released Friday, “Technoliquidity,” postulates entertainment technology, such as video games, “has triggered an evolutionary leap, just like the written word 3,000 years ago.” “The human brain has not changed on an anatomical level but it now works  differently. It is a new brain. And the protagonists of this historic step, the  ones with a ‘new brain,’ are the children and adolescents of today.”

Technoliquidity postulates entertainment technology creates a new brain in children of today.
