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.
