Computers damage our memory, says study
根据一项研究结果显示，过分依赖使用电脑和搜索引擎会使人脑的记忆力减退。以下是 Oliver Farrimond 的报道。
Scientists spoke to 6,000 adults in eight European countries and found that while many were able to recall phone numbers from their childhood, fewer could remember their current work numbers, or the contact details of family members.
About a third turned first to computers to recall information.
British adults seemed to be the worst affected. Only about half knew their partners' phone numbers, compared with four fifths of Italians.
Researchers say people have become accustomed to using digital devices as extensions of their brains, and that repeatedly looking up information does not create a lasting memory in the same way as simple recollection.
