Is social media changing our brain?

Yes! We have a floodlight brain, which means that we are better able to process multiple pieces of information at the same time.

In another study, I found that social media use can improve empathy.


Liars have better working memory

Lying has received a bad reputation but it is actually one of the biggest accomplishments of our brain. We have to juggle multiple pieces of information and different perspectives. In my research, I found that children who are good liars, are smarter than those who have trouble telling a convincing lie.
