Hyperphrenia: Your Brain on Media
Division:Life Sciences / None
Region:Pacific Northwest
City:Smithers, BC
School:Bulkley Valley Christian School
Abstract:This project explores the affect that media exposure has on specific cognitive tasks. The project investigated whether media exposure, both during the actual test and in the students' everyday experience, impaired or enhanced their performance on reading and vocabulary tests. These results were also compared to the grade equivalency scores for the reading tests. The students were also observed as they took the test.
