Google damages the brains of its users by offering too much assistance in solving problems, an author has claimed.
Search engines’ function of providing us with information almost instantly means people are losing their intellectual capacity to store information, Nicolas Carr, said.
The author of The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains, claimed that the web was depriving our mental faculties of the regular workouts they need.
He told the BBC  that the internet meant people now found it harder to concentrate, for example when trying to read a book.
