Martin Korte Thu, 15th February 2024, 8:00 pm Fresh in the head: surviving constant digital stress Lecture We are constantly at the screen – video conferencing, screen work, chatting, online shopping, streaming series. This means we are exposed to digital sensory overload every day. How does this affect our brain, our thinking and our behavior? Neurobiologist and successful author Martin Korte summarizes the latest research findings and dispels some myths: When digital media use harms the brain and when it helps it, why multitasking is a fairy tale and how older people use the internet to keep their memory sharp. He also gives specific recommendations on how to stay “fresh in the head” despite constant digital stress. Martin Korte is Professor of Cellular Neurobiology and Director of the Zoological Institute at TU Braunschweig. His research focuses on the cellular basis of learning and memory as well as the processes of forgetting. In addition to his work as a scientist, he regularly gives public lectures for schools and politicians.
