Technoliquidity

Dec. 15, 2012 – ROME (UPI)

— 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, “Technoliquidity,” postulates entertainment technology, such as video games, “has triggered an evolutionary leap, just like the written word 3,000 years ago.”

“It has changed our memory, our brain has lost certain connections,” the Italian news agency ANSA quoted Togo as saying. “Some circuits have been lost and others have developed, circuits that are more closely linked to perception.

“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.” © 2012 United Press International, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
