Internet Universe. Does the Internet make us more superficial or smarter?

Lecture by Cristina Sáez

The use of the Internet modifies our brain thanks to the organ’s plasticity. But what are its effects on cognitive processes? What influence does it have on our capacity for concentration, critical thinking, memory, mental agility and reasoning?

Debate currently rages regarding what the effects of the Internet are on a cognitive level, with two contradicting views: those who see it as a tool that can make us smarter and those who think that it makes us more superficial. What are the arguments of the two sides?
