Renowned University of Miami psychologist and brain researcher Dr. Amishi Jha has some good news for Florida lawyers.

Contrary to popular myth, that constantly ringing cell phone and other electronic distractions aren’t putting a dent in anyone’s attention span or damaging anyone’s ability to concentrate.

“Are attention spans shrinking because of modern technology? No, they are not,” Jha says. “The human capacity to pay attention has not changed. Your brain is not altered.”
