How Tech Has Changed Us In Weird Ways
BANGALORE: “Technology has altered the human brain,” is a universal fact, since technical advancements have an incredibly deep effect on the way our brain works. The Tech has made us to feel, think and even dream differently. While it has made drastic impact on our attention skill, memory and sleep routine, some researchers claim that tech has few positive impacts as well. It has bestowed new skills to make us more creative, to organize our lives, and make our mind free from frustrations. Many studies conducted on the impact of technology on our brains, here are some of the most interesting findings, as compiled by Mashable.
#1 Dreaming In Color
Television has deeply affected our brain, especially our dream. In 2008, a Dundee University research established that adults above the age of 55, who had brought up with a black and white TV, were more likely to experience the dream in black and white. But the younger generations, brought up in the era of Technicolor, always dreamed in color. The American Psychological Association verified these findings.
#2 Sleeping Problems
Tech –savvy people are used to fall asleep, by looking at the glow of laptop or Smartphone display. The bright light produced by the Smartphone, laptop, and tablet screens disturbs our body’s internal light cues and sleep inducing hormones. This bright light can fool the brain by thinking it is still day time and causes long lasting effect on our internal sleep clock. Our eyes are very sensitive to the blue color produced by the screen, which makes harder to fall asleep, especially for those who suffers from insomnia.
