     Introduction of Special Edition


    The special edition of Psychology and Cognitive Sciences – Open Journal is entitled “The influences of the Internet on cognition and behavior.” The Internet has opened up numerous avenues ranging from scientific and social information to entertainment, shopping, paying bills, and investing. Although exciting and novel worlds have been created for us during the past 25 years, new challenges and safety risks have also been added. Therefore, these continued and dynamic developments have aided in modifying our behavior. Although not exhaustive by any means, such topics may include cyberbullying, security and safety, apps, internet addiction, dating, business, communication and texting practices, and learning. Manuscripts from all disciplines are invited that address this topic.

     Introduction of Special Edition


    This Special Edition of Psychology and Cognitive Sciences – Open Journal is entitled “Technology, Learning, and the Brain”. Information and digital technologies have reshaped teaching and learning in schools in addition to changing our students brains, but often not in ways anticipated by technology proponents. Technologies influence teaching and learning where schools have made significant use of assessment and instructional technologies to promote learning, whereas technologies for learners are somewhat limited from school contexts. Modern classrooms have experienced both advantages and disadvantages of innovative technologies and the benefits appear to far outweigh the obstacles. Newer technologies create newer challenges for teachers, but also open up potential new pathways for meaningful learning, innovative delivery models, and collaboration. Manuscripts from all disciplines of psychology, neuroscience, psychiatry, neurology, education, sociology, anthropology, and computer and information technology are invited to address this topic.
