Dementia: Habits that damage memory may include multi-tasking

These networks are known as the frontoparietal control network, the dorsal attention network, and the ventral attention network.

Kevin Paul Madore, a neuroscientist at Stanford University, who partook in the study, explained: “One way we examine the effects of multitasking on behaviour and the demands it places on relevant brain networks is by analysing ‘task switch costs’.

“Some research has indicated that chronic everyday media multi-tasking is related to errors in our ability to hold and use information in mind (working memory) and our ability to retrieve information (long-term memory).”

But while overriding the body could damage memory, doing too little could be just as bad for the brain.
