Description of Sean's research interest:

The ways in which people learn, remember, socialize, and solve problems have all been profoundly affected by technological innovation. In this relatively new line of research, we are exploring memory dynamics in the context of computers and the Internet, focusing in particular on how people use digital technology as a form of cognitive offloading. Our work has shown that saving old information to a computer can make it easier to learn new information (Storm & Stone, 2015), and that using the Internet to retrieve information can influence a person's tendency to rely on the Internet to retrieve other information (Storm, Stone, & Benjamin, 2016). We look forward to continuing this line of work in many new and interesting directions.
