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 pieces of information and folder names on the computer. When participants needed to repeat the information they read, they were better able to keep track of the names of the folders where the information was stored. The results indicated that priority was given to keeping the location of the information and not to the information itself, when the user could know where to look for information when the information itself was already forgotten, the researchers said.
It is much easier to simply know that our information is all centered on a computer or the Internet. The computer remembers our schedule, birthdays, remembers to do the shopping and what ever we need to buy. It is much easier to put together a shopping list using the ShopShop app. Facebook pages or a single search word within Google.
