Un potente e inquietante análisis de nuestra dependencia de las nuevas tecnologías, por el autor de Superficiales. ¿Qué está haciendo net con nuestras mentes?

¿Somos capaces de decidir qué tareas dejamos en manos del ordenador y cuáles nos reservamos? ¿Dedicamos nuestra atención a lo que queremos? Las nuevas tecnologías suponen un ahorro de trabajo, pero ¿podrían erosionar nuestra libertad?

Cada día, diversas aplicaciones nos ayudan a hacer ejercicio o incluso buscar pareja. Confiamos en una voz man made que nos guía paso a paso hasta nuestro destino. Las redes sociales nos incitan a recuperar amistades. los angeles automatización es imparable y ya se está apropiando incluso de las profesiones más cualificadas: los software program substituyen el ojo clínico del médico, el oído del músico, los angeles mano del arquitecto o los angeles pericia del piloto. Coches que conducen solos, ataques con drones militares... l. a. realidad supera con creces lo que hasta hace poco nos parecía ciencia ficción.

Tejido a base de curiosidades históricas y lúcidas descripciones de las últimas tendencias tecnológicas, económicas, psicológicas y neurocientíficas, Atrapados nos brinda una visión realista y alarmante de un poderoso fenómeno que está determinando nuestras vidas.

Carr lleva años cuestionando las ventajas reales de las tecnologías de los angeles información y favoreciendo el debate sobre un tema controvertido que nos afecta a todos.

WHO makes a decision WHICH proof ARE actual?
In 1998 Andrew Wakefield, a British gastroenterologist with a historical past of self-promotion, released a paper with a surprising allegation: the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine may reason autism. The media seized carry of the tale and, within the approach, helped to release essentially the most devastating healthiness scares ever. within the future years Wakefield will be printed as a profiteer in league with class-action legal professionals, and he may finally lose his scientific license. in the meantime one examine after one other didn't locate any hyperlink among adolescence vaccines and autism.
Yet the parable that vaccines one way or the other reason developmental issues lives on. regardless of the inability of corroborating proof, it's been popularized by way of media personalities corresponding to Oprah Winfrey and Jenny McCarthy and legitimized through newshounds who declare that they're simply being reasonable to “both sides” of a subject approximately which there's little debate. in the meantime thousands of greenbacks were diverted from power breakthroughs in autism learn, households have spent their mark downs on useless “miracle cures,” and declining vaccination charges have ended in outbreaks of lethal health problems like Hib, measles, and whooping cough. so much tragic of all is the expanding variety of childrens loss of life from vaccine-preventable ailments.
In The Panic Virus Seth Mnookin attracts on interviews with mom and dad, public-health advocates, scientists, and anti-vaccine activists to take on a basic query: How will we come to a decision what as a matter of fact? The attention-grabbing resolution is helping clarify every little thing from the endurance of conspiracy theories approximately Sept. 11 to the attraction of talk-show hosts who call for that President Obama “prove” he was once born in the United States.
The Panic Virus is a riveting and occasionally heart-breaking clinical detective tale that explores the boundaries of rational suggestion. it's the final cautionary story for our time.

The investigations of Kohlloffel (1972) indicate a continuous change in the vibratory properties of the 59 W I L L I A M S. RHODE basilar membrane of the guinea pig after death. The slopes of the amplitude envelope decrease with time and the region of maximum response for a given fre­ quency shifts basally. Moreover, he finds that less pressure is required to reach a given displacement in the region of best response. These changes are com­ patible with those observed here over a shorter time frame.

After the onset of eddy flow, however, the distal slope of the envelope be­ comes progressively steeper and the maximum sharper (Fig. 1 8 ) . This latter observation may represent a link between the two types of nonlinear cochlear pro­ cesses described in the present paper. It is recalled that the degree of asymmetrical responses varied also with the sharpness of the envelope maximum. When beating signals are raised to levels beyond the onset of eddy motion, the eddy flow is no longer con­ tinuous, but speeds up and slows down in synchrony with the beat rate.
