Research suggests that using the Internet helps boost brain power for middle-aged and older people .(research on younger people has not been done). The study compares brain activity when the subjects were reading and when the subjects were surfing the Internet. It found that Internet surfing uses much more brain activity than reading does. Lead researcher Professor Gary Small said: "The study results are encouraging, that emerging computerized technologies may have physiological effects and potential benefits for middle-aged and older adults.Internet searching engages complicated brain activity, which may help exercise and improve brain function."
