One of the raised questions on the internet is about the presence of modern technology. Long ago, our technology only affects the complexity of our lifestyle, but nowadays, it does not just affect our own lifestyle and habits but also how our brains function. We may develop certain characteristics that our parents and past generation relatives don’t have. We may also attain potential abilities like improvement in vision, thinking, and creativeness. The newest technology, as a concept, affects our minds in both positive and negative way. Here are few of the things on how our brain system is being affected by the technology virus.
Afraid of being missed out or MO syndrome
As society dictates, being left behind with the newest trend is a sign that you are a weakling or a killjoy type of person who settles only on standard and old fashioned means of lifestyle. Since the latest and the most popular topic nowadays is technology, wherein millions of interesting and awesome items and features are incorporated and sold in the market, the fear of being missed out or commonly called the missing out syndrome developed. This means that you get a tiny tingling sensation in your body when you hear or see your friends or any people using a new technology. Furthermore, this will lead to you developing the urge to buy that item. There have been thousands of reports of these cases which alarmed concerned parents and elderly.
Not able to sleep at nights is one of the worst effects of technology in the human lives. There are millions of users of the internet who stays up late at night just to socialize with their friends, share, like, comments on posts, and watch videos and movies. Some of them develop insomnia, or the disability to sleep properly at night. Sleeping is where most of the regenerations of our body happen. It is like a restart of the neurons, cells, and tissues of our body. Being deprived of it, our body will then fail to regenerate and the cells tend to weaken.
Studies have shown that the dreams of the new generation are way different than the dream of the old generation. Researchers have found out that our dreams come with colorful unlike black and white dreams of our parents before. This is due to the colored things we have on the internet. Everything today is beautiful with colors, although there are certain things that gain beauty in darkness.
Unused memory capacities
Due to the presence of memory cards, smartphones, laptops, the memory of human beings, mostly the users of technology are left unused. In a comparative study of our memorizing skills, the older generations are way better than us. This is probably due to the influence of technology on our brain. We tend to memorize less since technology comes to aid in terms of memorizing.
Improved Visual abilities
It is not only our cognitive skills that developed but also our visual abilities. Most of the users of technology can easily determine movements and can immediately formulate an action to it. Our senses have been keen due to playing games on the internet. This proves that technology and playing video games and computer games aren’t bad at all times.
