Bright Lights & Buzzing Noises

From our parent company's media lab:

An Oxford neuroscientist recently suggested that repeated exposure to Facebook might have detrimental effects on our brain. Quoted in online UK publication Daily Mail, Susan Greenfield says, “My fear is that these technologies are infantilising the brain into the state of small children who are attracted by buzzing noises and bright lights, who have a small attention span and who live for the moment.”

What do you think of that, readers? I know my attention span is shrinking... is yours?
