调查:高科技产品使人们记忆力减退

2014-06-06    来源:MailOnline    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

Technology is turning us absent minded, researchers claim as it's revealed one in 7 young adults suffer memory lapses

据英国《每日邮报》报道,最新一项调查显示,由于过分依赖手机、电脑等现代科技产品,越来越多的年轻人提早迎来记忆力的衰退期。

美国加利福尼亚大学的研究团队日前对1万8000名18到99岁的成年人进行了问卷调查。结果显示,20%的参与者表示他们存在记忆力减退的问题。14%的年龄在18到39岁的参与者承认,他们会经常发生短暂性失忆。

研究显示,过分依赖手机、电脑等现代科技产品会缩短注意力的持续时间,使大脑很难专注或记住某事。此前一项研究还表明,忧郁、教育缺失、缺乏锻炼以及高血压都会导致记忆力减退。

专家提醒,虽然短暂性失忆不会导致老年痴呆,但却会严重加剧日后的记忆力衰退问题。医生建议,年轻人要提高对自身健康状况的关注,降低危险因素对健康的影响。


One in seven young adults suffers memory problems – and attention-sapping technology may be partly to blame, researchers warn.

A study found memory lapses are not just the preserve of the elderly, with 14 per cent of those aged between 18 and 39 worried about their recall.
With links between absent-mindedness and dementia, the US researchers said that the young need to look after their minds.

The University of California team commissioned a health and lifestyle survey of more than 18,000 people aged between 18 and 99.


When asked if they had any problems with memory, 20 per cent said yes.
Unsurprisingly, those aged 60-plus had the most memory problems but  researchers were taken aback by the high level among 18 to 39-year-olds.

Depression, low levels of education, lack of exercise and high blood pressure were all implicated – and the more risk factors a person had the worse their memory, the journal PLOS ONE reports.

The researchers said that young people may be particularly affected by stress – and by the memory-sapping effects of multi-tasking.

Using a phone, computer and other gadgets at the same time may shorten attention span, making it harder to focus and remember.

They added that while everyday memory lapses don’t necessarily lead to dementia, they often precede ‘more significant memory decline in later life’.
People of all ages are advised to ensure that any depression or high blood pressure is treated and to exercise regularly.

Constant learning, in the form of night classes and new hobbies, may also help, with education thought to boost the brain’s resilience against the memory-robbing changes of Alzheimer’s.

Researcher Dr Stephen Chen, a psychiatrist, said: ‘We hope that our findings will raise awareness among researchers, health care providers and the general public about the importance of lowering risk factors at any age.’(MailOnline)
