Abstract

"iDisorder: Understanding our Obsession with Technology and Overcoming its Hold on Us." Larry Rosen, Nancy Cheever, and Mark Carrier. Palgrave Macmillan. May 2013. --- How is your daily use of media and technology changing your brain’s ability to process information and your ability to relate to the world, resulting in stress, sleeplessness, and a compulsive need to check in with all of your technology? iDisorder considers the creeping psychological and neurological impacts that technology is having on us. This book is a reminder that real changes are occurring in our brains and we need to be aware of them, writes Melanie Conroy.
