Is technology changing our memory patterns?

A new study finds the brain just doesn't remember information as well if the person knows that the information has been saved on a computer or cell phone.

What people may remember is where they need to look on the computer to access that information.

Scientists say what isn't clear yet is how these changing memory patterns may change the brain in the long run.

On the other hand, scientists say the Internet is providing people with a lot of knowledge. And future studies could determine what we think is detrimental may actually turn out to be positive.
