Smart Phones & Cognition - Dr. Frost: Psi Beta & Psych Club Guest Lecture Series

Please join us! Open to all students, faculty and staff.

"Relying on Smartphones to Extend our Cognitive Capacity: Are there Potential Lingering Effects of Smartphone Use on Cognition"?

Smartphone technology is taking on an increasingly larger role in our daily mental activities. Might easy access to information take away from practice of more deliberative thoughts and critical thinking skills? Moreover, might the constant notifications and cues provided by mobile phones be interrupting our ability to engage in higher order cognition and/or delay gratification for longer-term goals? Are we good at judging how much we use our smartphones (i.e., metacognition)? We conducted a series of surveys and experiments using tracking applications to answer these questions, and will discuss the implications of our research results during our presentation.

Attendance will be taken for those faculty offering extra credit for their students.
