Very interesting book about how the brain is being changed by technology, and not always for the better. Humans have always been able to adapt and change but now there is a real gap in knowledge and abilities between those born and educated before the technological revolution and those born since.

I do think the authors tend to generalize too much and for people who are very familiar with computers at times he may come across as condescending. However, for people who are totally unfamiliar with computers, there are useful tips. It includes some exercises and resources for obtaining more information about this rapidly changing topic. Every parent who is not proficient with technology should read this book, as well as those interested in how these advances are changing their child’s brain.

One person found this helpful. I was looking forward to a thought provoking read backed by scientific fact.

So far, a short reference to an FMRI study on brain activation while doing a google search contrasting the computer savvy and computer ignorant. Big surprise, there is a difference which eventually diminishes as the ignorant learns. I would postulate a similar study conducted of a person learning to drive a car, bounce a basketball, learning to walk would kbrain similar results.

Yes I know you can not drive a car in an MRI machine. I had issues when presented with a few high level paragraphs talking about Natural Selection and Evolution leading into an equating of thought process change due to digital input as Evolution. What kind of scientific iibrain is that?

iBrain: Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind by Gary Small

Will the neurology of the next generation born be fundamentally different to what has gone before? Are genetic modifications occurring? Another point – The gap between the “Digital Immigrants” and “Digital Natives” really good terms by the waywill be gone in one generation.

Sorry, assumes that the current state of digital communication is at the pinnacle. My yet to be born grandchildren will laugh at the experience of my children natives just as my children laugh at me now. I was interested in the supposition that personal interaction decreased as digital interaction increased, but found not facts to back up the statement. I wonder about how the abbreviation of language might affect future communications, I worry that the quantity of communication has lowered the quality of communication someone could post a direct communique from God with the true meaning of life on facebook right now and perhaps get a dozen “I like it”‘ replies in between 2 dozen farmville fruits for sale.


I really was hoping to be challenged and enlightened by this book. Perhaps I am not the intended audience. Dr Small has done a fabulous job of making the complexity of the subject reasonably simple for a non scientist without losing important details. His book makes so many important points that I had my students read excerpts and we did an in class debate years ago when the book first came out.

The question my students posed: Thanks for getting them to think about it! I know that can happen quickly with technology subjects but wasn’t expecting it.

Also, author did not discuss to my satisfaction how our brains are being affected by technology. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.

Do you want to know what’s going on in your, or your child’s, brain when you stare at screens all day? This will tell you. Scientifically backed up information, nearly half the book is references to studies done. Worth reading, although not revolutionary. A review of the way things were in Neuroscience had made advances. Often doesnot gayr on the subject to review elementary information gart how to live in this high-tech world. See all 23 reviews.
