Re: "iBrain: Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind."
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, Oklahoma – On this edition of StudioTulsa, we offer a program that originally aired back in November. Our today is Dr. Gary Small, one of the nation's leading neuroscientists and an expert on the brain's operation as well as its behavior. Dr. Small has co-written a new book, called "iBrain," which he discusses on today's show with host Rich Fisher. This book explores how technology's incessant if not dizzying progress has altered --- indeed, has already seriously altered --- the way young minds develop, function, and interpret information. One critic, writing for Library Journal, has noted that "iBrain" makes its "case based on abundant research in the areas of health, psychology, pediatrics, education, business, and technology. . . . A compelling as well as timely read, this is highly recommended."
