The Distracted Mind, Adam Gazzaley

April 13, 2017 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
MIT Press Bookstore
301 Massachusetts Ave
Cambridge, MA 02139

The MIT Press Bookstore presents Adam Gazzaley, Director of the Gazzaley Lab at the University of California, San Francisco, discussing his new book, The Distracted Mind: Ancient Brains in a High-Tech World, at 6:00 pm, Thursday April 13, at the Bookstore.

We pride ourselves on our ability to multitask–read work email, reply to a text, check Facebook, watch a video clip. Talk on the phone, send a text, drive a car. Enjoy family dinner with glowing smartphones next to our plates. We can do it all, 24/7! Never mind the errors in the email, the near-miss on the road, and the unheard conversation at the table. In The Distracted Mind, Adam Gazzaley and Larry Rosen–a neuroscientist and a psychologist–explain why our brains aren’t built for multitasking, and suggest better ways to live in a high-tech world without giving up our modern technology.

This event includes a book signing. Books will be on sale at the event for 20% off, or you can purchase an event ticket that includes a discounted book.
