Study: Turn off iPhone, take a hike – your creativity will soar 


Results of the study by Strayer and University of Kansas psychologists Ruth Ann Atchley and Paul Atchley in PLOS ONE, an online journal of the Public Library of Science, were released Wednesday.
"The constant bombardment of technology and urban life is draining the frontal portion of the brain, suppressing problem solving, decision making and creativity," said Strayer, who teaches a "Cognition in the Wild" class through the University of Utah in the backcountry of southern Utah. "When you get away from that hustle and bustle and out in nature, where it is soft and fascinating, your brain can replenish, become sharper and focus on thinking.”
