STRESS & THE BRAIN 2 Stress & the Brain Human brains have become busier than ever before and people view multitasking as the most efficient way to accomplish their duties. According to Levitin (2015), multitasking is simply a diabolical illusion. The author cites Earl Miller, a neuroscientist, who opined that human brain is not designed to multitask and whenever people think that they are multitasking, they are instead switching rapidly from one task to the next which comes with a cognitive cost (Levitin, 2015). Therefore during multitasking, instead of accomplishing a lot of tasks at a go, the individual only becomes obviously less efficient. People tend to thinking that through multitasking, they lower their stress levels by accomplishing the tasks much faster. This is not true as multitasking only increases the stress levels. Whenever demand exceeds one’s ability, stress has to creep in (McEwen et al., 2015).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
