Since learning and knowing affect brain connections and development, I think it will be interesting to see how the first generation to grow up with computers and video games as daily parts of their lives fare later in life. Will they have any sort of structural changes in their brains that make them more or less vulnerable to certain cognitive problems and diseases later in life?

When you blur epistemic boundaries and use tools for different things than they were used in the past, it could have long ranging consequences. Or it could just as easily turn out not to matter. I don't know. It's just something I think about sometimes.
