How The Internet Is Ruining Your Brain | ForensicPsychology

How The Internet Is Ruining Your Brain | ForensicPsychology | Forensic and Neuropsychology | Scoop.it

Everyone "Googles"

When you get asked a question and you don’t know the answer – your answer is Google.

But is this a good thing or a bad thing?

 

In forensic psychology we dive into the minds of criminals, but because of the internet and sites like Google and Facebook, those minds are being altered.

 

In order to analyze the minds of criminals, it is often a prerequisite to analyze the mind of a normal person. Research has shown that our minds have already changed because of the internet.

 

The studies show that the internet is having a negative impact on the way people think, analyze, and remember things.

 

In fact, studies even say that heavy internet use can affect the brain in the same way cocaine affects the brains of addicts.

 

Turns out, multi-tasking online doesn’t positively exercise our brains or mental state.

Heavy Internet users are 2.5 times more likely to be depressed.

 

And web addiction reduces the white matter in our brains, basically the transmitters responsible for our memory and sensory abilities.

 

So as our thought processes change, so do those of criminals and it’s important to understand how the internet is affecting our minds.

 

This Infographic will show you just how brains, thoughts, and memories are changing because of the internet.

Disturbing - I know I struggle with this! Multi-tasking = Multi-slacking. But here I am commenting on this cool infographic while reading up on ICD-10, preparing a presentation about Meditech training, listening to MC 900-ft Jesus on Pandora, and chatting with my team about lunch plans. We're doomed!
