Paige DaBell Posted 8 months ago Do we learn faster in cities? Learning is defined here as: Acquiring tested, practical knowledge or skill from human and non-human sources. I believe we learn to increase the rate at which we can process information in cities. There are so many sights and sounds in a city and if someone isn't adapted to it, they can become overwhelmed. Since humans mold to their surroundings we are able to learn how to process and accept these many signals that are coming into our brain after a period of exposure, noticing patterns and points of information a lot quicker than someone who is not accustomed to this influx of data. This could make learning easier and faster for those who live in cities compared to people who live in a quieter area who run into less stimulants through out the day. Interesting topic.
