Will someone born in 2017 ever unfold a map to determine the best driving route from New York City to a small town in Massachusetts? Will they memorize a phone number other than their own? Will they grow up to be smarter because their mind is no longer cluttered with mundane facts and the processes technology can do for us?

Psychologists and neuroscientists don’t know these answers yet. But they’re beginning to understand how spending every waking moment within reach of Internet-connected devices is affecting our lives.

“We’ve never had a technology that we use so intensively for so many different things,” says Nicholas Carr, author of “The Glass Cage: How Computers Are Changing Us.”
