Does babies’ exposure to digital technologies such as smartphones and touchpads affect the way their brains develop? How is technology shaping our cognitive abilities, attention span, and mental prowess? As “digital natives” enter the professional workforce, employers must find ways to balance the skills and capabilities of a new generation with the expertise and experience of previous generations. Join this panel discussion led by neuroscientist Adam Gazzaley exploring some of the neurological advantages and challenges of living in a digitized world.

Venue: American Museum of Natural History
