Technology effects on the adult brain

Hi Leslie,

I’m a pediatric occupational therapist and sensory specialist with expertise on the impact of technology on child development, and would be available to comment on adult sensory processing and technology.

We input and process information through our sensory system e.g. eyes, ears, skin, muscles. This input needs to be balanced in order to integrate properly and enable attention and learning. Technology overuse causes sensory overload of the visual and auditory sensory channels, and sensory deprivation in the touch and movement channels, impacting on an adult’s productivity and behavior.

Technology overuse is resulting in an irreversible re-wiring of the brain for high speed, partial tasking – causing enormous problems at work and home.

Have a GREAT day!
