Unlocking the Brain: The Impact of Human Connection and Technology on Mental Health with Dr. Mark Williams
In this captivating episode on the power of human connection and its impact on our brains. Dr. Mark Williams, an award-winning author and cognitive neuroscience professor, sheds light on the concerning effects of technology on mental health, well-being, and relationships.
Dr. Williams discusses the addictive nature of devices, how they rob us of our brain’s full potential, and even increase the risk of early-onset Alzheimer’s and dementia. He emphasizes the importance of monitoring children’s device usage and shares a unique family approach to managing screen time. The episode also explores the significance of face-to-face interaction, which activates more parts of the brain and fosters trust and openness through the release of oxytocin, the “love hormone.”
