My digital brain damage III

Has it become difficult to read novels? Have we become screen zombies who can't help but believe in the screens of all our digital platforms? Science journalist Charlotte Koldbye has investigated why she suddenly can't read novels anymore. In the program series, she visits the doctor Imran Rashid, the brain scientist Jesper Mogensen and the scientist Sune Lehmann, who have examined our collective attention. How can you go from being a devious reading horse who has been through several novels at one time to being unable to read a book? Are we many who feel this way, do the digital media ruin our ability for deep thinking  and thus the ability to read novels? And what does it do to the brain? Is there anything wrong with the novels? Consult the experts when the digital brain damage is on the chip.

In the third program you will meet (in Danish)Professor Sune Lehmann from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
