British navigator David Parry warned that satellite navigation such as Google Maps could harm the human brain and even increase the chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Former British diplomat Barry, who has written extensively on natural navigation, pointed out that humans have developed an accurate sense of their surroundings and their place in the world over hundreds of thousands of years, which is now ending with the rule of technology.
Parry, according to the British newspaper Telegraph on Wednesday, expressed concern that electronic navigation systems prevent people from developing the resilience that the brain needs later in life.
Bari explained that the hippocampus is the first area of the brain to deteriorate with Alzheimer’s, which affects the person’s ability to remember trends and navigation, expressing “deep sadness” when people see down to follow the maps of smart phones.
“With people relying more on electronic equipment to find their way, humans are moving farther and farther away from the natural world,” he said, warning that parts of the brain responsible for navigation need to be trained and if not received, they literally “shrink.”
“It is possible that the victims of Alzheimer’s disease, which first shows itself in confusion, have already suffered a hippocampus in the brain from contracting because of its lack of use or that it has less resilience in keeping with the outbreak of the disease, so this is a good reason to keep those parts In the brain by training. ”
