Technology is developing rapidly. It is an essential part of how we live our daily lives—in a mental and physical sense, and in professional and personal environments. This book explores the ideas of technology addiction, brain training, and much more. It provides readers with a guide to understanding concepts related to the online world and answers important questions, such as: what is the impact of digital technology on our learning, memory, attention, problem-solving, and decision making?; if we continue to use digital technology on a large scale, can it change the way we think?; and can human cognition keep up with technology? Suitable for students of Cyberpsychology and Cognitive Psychology courses at all levels, as well as anyone with an inquiring mind.
