Digitalisation and Brain Development


What aspects of brain development can be influenced by digitalization, and how can educators effectively utilise digital technologies in their curriculum?

The course aims to shed light on the interplay between digitalisation and brain development while providing practical strategies for educators to leverage digital technologies in their teaching methods.

We dive into the science of brain development, outlining how digitalization can influence cognitive functions such as memory, attention, problem-solving, and creativity.

We explore the transformative role of digitalisation in the modern educational landscape. We examine how digital tools, ranging from interactive learning platforms to educational apps, have revolutionized teaching and learning processes

By the end of this course, educators will possess a comprehensive understanding of how digitalisation influences brain development, along with practical strategies for effectively utilizing digital technologies in their curriculum.

About the Speaker

Huriye Atilgan, an auditory neuroscientist, completed her Master and PhD at UCL Ear Institute, London, researching on how visual cues aid hearing in challenging situations. She later worked with Prof Alex Kwan at Yale University, exploring neural mechanisms of value-based decision-making in mice, using optogenetic techniques and biosensors. Currently, as a Sir Henry Wellcome Fellow, she is investigating the role of the claustrum in mice with Dr Adam Packer and Dr Armin Lak, using advanced methods like electrophysiological recordings and computational models. She has a keen interest in large-scale, pan-cortical communication for higher cognitive function.
