'Today we are in an era of information overload'

Fifteen myths about memory

Chennai: Considering that today's academic load on students is far higher than what used to be a few decades ago, in what ways can a professional student enhance his throughput and at the same time enjoy the exercise?
On this apparently loaded question about `load,' Prof K. Ganapathy, Neurosurgeon, Apollo Hospitals, Chennai, has a different view. He concedes that today's academic load on students is higher than earlier, but he also insists that it is equally true that learning tools and exposure have developed even faster than the quantum of knowledge that needs to be imbibed.
