The Brain Decoded : This is why Children of Digital-Age Posses Minds Quicker than their Parents

For millenniums, the human brain has managed to adapt the challenge of reading, writing and the most recent one called ‘digital communication.’

Nowadays, this adoption is all about just one thing : speed. The premotor and motor cortex areas of our brains are the ones that actually govern our actions. The kids of today who have grown up in the age of this digital revolution are extraordinarily quick and apt in their actions, is mostly because of the positive effects of their accustomedness to the reward-based video games.

This basic, actuating, principle of satisfaction releases a natural stimulus which is found in the limbic system and prefrontal cortex of the human brain, called “dopamine” – which is responsible for influencing behavior. As the so-called “Digital Natives”, multi taskers have the tendency of storing links rather than contents, sometimes without taking a step back or any kind of reasoning. And still, in some combat -based video games, they need some perspectives, when the natural instinct of the brain tries to drive them to perform some violent acts.

A digital native gains superficial memory instead of a deeper memory bank of his/her literary similitude, the linear approach of whom helps to keep back information by means of a cognitive process the prefrontal cortex of the brain performs.

By taking the cognitive control of their brain’s prefrontal cortex area, the digital natives must balk the automatic reflexes and instincts the computer screens triggers.

Because balking these impulses successively means that they take complete control over their beliefs, thoughts and reasoning!
