Media multitasking disrupts memory, even in young adults.
Simultaneous TV, texting and Instagram lead to memory-sapping attention lapses
“We found evidence that one’s ability to sustain attention helps to explain the relationship between heavier media multitasking and worse memory,” says the paper’s lead author Kevin Madore, a postdoctoral fellow in the department of psychology at Stanford University. “Individuals who are heavier media multitaskers may also show worse memory because they have lower sustained attention ability.” #stop multi-tasking
