Happy New Decade, everyone!
It’s not a secret that children (and really all of society) this past decade have become addicted, depressed, anxious, distracted, and angry.
The question is why. I’m going out on a limb here. We now have two dopamine stimulators that we freely and willingly give to kids — sugar and technology. But the genie is out of the bottle. We have to find a way to peacefully co-exist with these problems, and we have to teach children how to manage them.
For the next six-months, I’m going on sabbatical in Paris, where I will be bridging two academic units — the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (https://www.cri-paris.org/en) and the neurocybernetics lab of ETIS (Information Processing and Systems Teams) at the Université de Cergy-Pontoise (https://perso-etis.ensea.fr/
Wish me luck! I’ll need it!
