brain shrinks

What happens when we outsource out thinking to an external device?

…then our brains will shrink. This is one out of five outcomes of extended research by Anthropologists of the University of Wisconsin-Madison that looked into how human bodies have evolved over the years and how it’s likely to develop in the future. According to them, the use of technological devices has made our brains more efficient; therefore, they’ve become smaller and are more likely to shrink in the future.

Human evolution is now 100 times faster compared to 4 million years ago. The reason for this is that our environments are evolving and asking more from us. Curious to discover where that leads to? Read more about our future bodies here.
