"The widespread use of search engines and online databases has affected the way people remember information, researchers are reporting. The scientists, led by Betsy Sparrow, an assistant professor of psychology at Columbia, wondered whether people were more likely to remember information that could be easily retrieved from a computer, just as students are more likely to recall facts they believe will be on a test."
