The tons of information we find on the internet can seem mind-numbing, but according to experts, the stimulation we get from wading through it exercises our brain, which may keep it more youthful. The simple task of surfing/searching the web which is similar to reading a book, stimulates areas of the brain responsible for language, memory, visual ability, and comprehension. You get more when you click through a website. The task triggers parts of the brain that handle decision-making and complex reasoning. And best of all, the more you do it, the greater the benefit. Research showed that experienced web surfers had twice as much brain activity as novices.
