You do not lose your memory because of the older age - you lose it because of it Google.
We all use the Internet to search for information. This is an inexhaustible, up-to-date and dynamic source where you can find any information (as long as it's not confidential or patent protected) you'll need. Want a chocolate cake recipe? there is. Need a home air conditioner? Here is a video from YouTube. Need to do work for school? Just copy toGoogle Translate and print.
Despite all the benefits of accessible information, A new study by Columbia University "The accessibility and speed with which we can access information through the computer, the Internet, and advanced search engines has degenerated and altered the memory patterns of our brains. The next time you fail the literary test you will blame the Google.
The study contained a series of experiments. In one experiment, participants typed bits of information and saved them on a computer, with half of them saying that the information would be erased and the other half said they could access the information later. Participants who knew that the information you typed on the computer spent less effort memorizing the information.
In another experiment, participants were asked to remember bits of information and names of folders on a computer. When the participants had to repeat the information they read, they knew better how to name the folders in which the necessary information was stored. The results indicated that priority was given to keeping the location of the information rather than the information itself, with the user being able to know where to look for his information when the information itself had already been forgotten, the researchers said.
It is much easier to just know that our information is all concentrated on a computer or on the Internet. The computer remembers for us our schedule, birthdays, remembers to do the shopping and what in general we need to buy. It is much simpler to compile a shopping list using the ShopShop app. All you have to do is remember that the information is, somewhere in one of the folders on the computer, buried between Facebook pages or within one search word in Google.
