Workshop 3:

Digital Living and its Impact on Cognition – Healthy or Harmful?

Cognitive abilities (e.g. memory, attention, decision making, emotional regulation, etc.) are vital functions that underpin many of our daily interactions. As our lives have moved more online than ever before as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to understand the ways in which modern digital living, learning, working and being are impacting our cognitive abilities. While there are indeed benefits to using technology, there are also several instances where digital interactions may be having an negative impact on our cognition, and more importantly longer-term effects are still unclear. This workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in the effects of technology on cognition, identify areas of future research, and foster collaborations between participants.
