i-Tech on the Brain
A Webinar Exploring the Effects of Method and Medium Inherent in the Use Screen Based Devices.
Screens and interlinked screen based devices are everywhere, arguably now completely central to all modern life; including work and production, scholastics and research, social interaction and play. As expected, any such mass innovation brings magnificent and most welcomed change, but so too the unknown.
In this Webinar, Dr. Mari Swingle, will present her research on the overt connections of excessive usage of screen based devices to depression, anxiety, ADHD, and obsessive compulsive behavior as well as the more subtle or ignored effects including systematic effects of screen based devices on our arousal templates and base neurophysiology affecting our health, intelligence, creativity, development, sexuality and socialization.

i-Tech on the Brain: Children
For adults over 40, problems do not stem from if they do or do not use digital technologies, but rather how and why they do or do not use them. It is arguably different for children. For those born directly into the digital world there appear to be substantial differences in cognitive, creative, and social-emotional development and related brain wave architecture associated with usage patterns. This webinar will explore the current presenting differences, some of the suspected causes, as well as some of the first concrete changes emerging on the EEG. The webinar will conclude with suggestions on how and when (and when not) to integrate the use of i-technology to ensure healthy development of children and youth.
