Preliminary results of brain activity during cognitive control tasks in chronic media multitaskers
- Previous research from our laboratory has revealed that chronic multitaskers (people who frequently use unrelated multiple media at one time) perform worse than non-chronic multitaskers in three of the primary cognitive control tasks associated with multitasking. This finding has far-reaching consequences, as chronic media multitasking is rapidly becoming ubiquitous. We proposed to use fMRI to investigate task-specific differences in the activity of brain regions related to cognitive control to elucidate the neural basis of cognitive control in heavy and light multitaskers.
