VOICES – How does technology affect our bodies?

SHARE

Not only do technological developments bring about changes in our society, but they also change our cognitive development. In other words, digitisation can atrophy parts of our brains and evolve other parts that may have been inactive until now.   

Dr. Federico Bermúdez Rattoni, Head of the Department of Cognitive Neuroscience at the Institute of Cellular Physiology (UNAM), explains how some of the gadgets or applications that we use in our daily lives can affect the morphology of our brains.
