Internet use 'good for the brain' - no way, huh?!

BBC NEWS | Health | Internet use 'good for the brain': "Professor Smith said: 'A simple, everyday task like searching the web appears to enhance brain circuitry in older adults, demonstrating that our brains are sensitive and can continue to learn as we grow older.'"

Am nearly ready to file this under my pile of 'obvious research which is common sense tarted up and given funding'... but... well... y'know... guess it's mildly interesting. However, don't you just love the last bit of the quote above. People in "can continue to learn as we grow older" shocker!!! Headline making stuff, huh?


Guess everyone's bored of the financial crisis and is digging around in the desperate pile for variety.
