The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American | Learning, Education, and Neuroscience | Scoop.it
E-readers and tablets are becoming more popular as such technologies improve, but research suggests that reading on paper still boasts unique advantages
Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

It's still early days for digital reading, so it's unclear how many of the issues noted in this examination of the differences between reading physical books and ebooks will remain, and how many will seem hopelessly antiquated to our descendents. I found that most of the points noted reflect my own experience with our evolving media delivery systems, while also suggesting some thought-provoking possibilities for the future.

How Sleep Clears the Brain - National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

I don't know about you, but I have a love-hate relationship with sleep. There's just so much I want to do, that I hate taking the time out to sleep. But, I love to sleep! My body craves it, and I am lucky to be one of those people who remember and (mostly) enjoy my dreams.

 

In his famous words, "to sleep, perchance to dream," Shakespeare may have reminded us of the connection of sleep to dreaming, but, there are significant healt benefits to getting enough sleep. There is nothing that frightens me more than the possibility that I might lose the ability to think and communicate, so reading about this new research (not just in this article, but in other reports) has renewed my commitment to getting enough sleep.

 

My wish for you is that you, too, may have a good night's sleep, tonight, and every night.

This is interesting. I recognized some, but not others.

Moses B. Tambason's curator insight, November 9, 2013 2:40 PM

More people are running to charity tube to post free videos and watch free videos than posting on you tube. Try posting at charity tube and you will never leave. http://www.africatube.net/ More visitors and more video views. Don't take our word for it, try it. Post one same video on youtube and put it on  http://www.africatube.net/ and return ater five hours and compare the viewers rate and decide for yourself. Create your very own group or forum and control who watch it and invite everyone to watch the video. Above all, post video in English or in any language and viewers can watch video description in their own language. Try it and let us know your experience. Above all it is absolutely free like youtube

The following is excerpted from Clive Thompson’s book Smarter Than You Think: How Technology Is Changing Our Minds for the Better, out now from the Penguin Press. Is the Internet ruining our ability to remember facts?
Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

In my family, we have laughingly referred to each other (or, more often, our kids) as our external hard drives. This article explains why we use each other's memory and why we can be glad we do.
