Doomscrolling: How Social Media Stimulation Affects Our Brains and Our Society

April 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Social media is now a huge part of our lives, whether we use it ourselves or not. It shapes the media agenda; it influences political discussions; it molds our culture. It also affects our brains: social media platforms use sophisticated systems to encourage us to engage more and more, perhaps beyond the point where it’s healthy. How is social media affecting our brains and our society? Are the effects good or bad? And what can we do about it?
