Multitasking Can Destroy Your Internal RAM

Constant interruptions and a continuous stream of new input. This is probably the more or less self-selected everyday for many of extratorrents readers / users. But mutitasking may have a price: Maybe you pay with your hukommelse.Ny research shows that multitasking temporarily negatively affect memory. The effect is greatest in the elderly, especially among younger people.

Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) has placed a greater number of people in an MRI scanner and identified some of the patterns that can be detected in the brain when a person is trying to multitask.

Through a so-called Functional MRI, they found that "working memory" - which apparently is very similar to the computer's RAM - so to speak was underclocked (slower, ed.) when there was multitasks.

Test subjects were asked to remember an image, and were then shown another picture with the face of a person. They were asked to determine the age and sex of the person on the new image, and should still remember the original image.

The conclusion was clear:

"Multi-tasking has a negative impact on retention of information in shorter periods,"it says.

The report "Deficit in Switching mellom functional brain networks underlies the impact of multitasking on working memory in Older adults," states the researchers remains that there is a pure memory loss:

"Our results seem to show that the negative impact that multitasking has on working memory is not necessarily a pure memory problem, but the result of an interaction between attention and memory," says senior Adam Gazzaley, professor of neurology, physiology and psychiatry and director of the UCSF Neuroscience Imaging Center.A summary of the report can be read . hereAccording to Science News Line confirms research at UCSF earlier research by Adam Gazzaley showing how to get the reduced memory of being subjected to simple distractions.

The new results can certainly accelerate the debate on how far the Internet, Facebook, Twitter, smartphones, etc. are really doing us a disservice (in the of the word) and actually reduces our mental resources, rather that to improve them.

One piece of advice to stressed IT plagued humans can read: Unplug - for example in the just approaching solemnity. Keep the Easter holiday from the net, drop the digital news when doing something else, and cultivate the new memory technology: Singletasking.
