Your Call 010709 How is technology changing our brains?

How are television, the Internet, email, iPhones and video games changing our brains? On the next Your Call we'll talk with Dr. Gary Small, director of the Memory and Aging Research Center at UCLA. Many of us have gotten used to ubiquitous digital technology at work and home, but young people today have never been away from it. They average 8 and half hours a day online, working, playing and communicating and it is changing the way their brains work. How can we protect ourselves and our children from the dangers of too much tech? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guest: Gary Small in Los Angeles
Director of the Memory & Aging Research Center at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior and the Center on Aging at UCLA. He is the author of many articles and books. His latest book is iBrain: Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind.
