In this programme, distinguished scientist Baroness Susan Greenfield explores the influence of junk culture on children's behaviour.
Greenfield, director of the Royal Institution of Great Britain, argues that more research is needed in order for us to understand how new computer technologies - based on vision and sound and offering rapid stimulation - are affecting children's brains.
She questions whether the rise of these new technologies accounts for some of the increase in hyperactivity amongst children and asks how education should harness such technologies for the best.
