The Distracted Mind With Dr. Adam GazzaleyStreaming Video - 2014
Hosted by renowned neuroscientist and M.D., Ph.D., Dr. Adam Gazzaley, this program delves deeply into attention, distraction, the myth of multi-tasking, and how to use the latest research to possibly improve our skills and abilities at any point during our lives. While the brain can seem almost boundless in its potential, it has limitations, such as processing speed, attentional limitations, working memory limitations, and sensitivity to interference, which can be both internal and external. Dr. Gazzaley explores the impact that multi-tasking has on our safety, memory, education, careers and personal lives. Most importantly, this program tells us what we can do to improve our attentional abilities and our focus as we age, and as media continues to dominate our landscape.
