Think Science: How the Internet Affects Your Brain

February 22 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Free

For a quarter of a century, humans have been interacting online through the World Wide Web, and along with the easy access to information have been sea changes in the way we do business, converse, and even fall in love. What influence has the Internet had on the way our minds work? Have we become a nation of “skimmers” that can no longer find time to read a novel? What about the addictive nature of social media, gaming, gambling or even online pornography? How has the Internet changed us?

Join us at our next Think Science presentation as we speak to two scholars with experience in this area. We’ll examine the ways we can get caught in the net, and how to keep our analog selves healthy.

Guests:
Dr. Allen Novian, PhD, LMFT, LPC, Novian Counseling & Neuroeducation Center or i CNS
Dr. Maryanne Wolf, author of “Reader, Come Home” (Dr. Wolf will appear remotely by phone at this live event)

Box lunches from Spice of Life catering will be available for $5.

This event is made possible in part by HealthTexas Medical Group and Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio.
