Explain what Russell Podrack found regarding multitasking.
He found that multitasking adversely affects how you learn. Even if you understand while multitasking you are unconsciously learning less because that learning is flexible and you can't learn the information entirely. His research shows that we use different parts of the brain for learning and storing information and when we are multitasking the information is stored in the striatum a place involved with learning new skills but not in the hippocampus a place involved with sorting and recalling information. So the information is not well stored.
