UO study lands online coverage by Forbes magazine columnist

Forbes magazine science and health contributor David DiSalvo writes in his online column that a study by Atika Khurana of the UO's College of Education is good news, especially for parents.

The study found that children who had weak working memory early on later showed increasing tendencies toward impulsive behavior, including engaging in early and unprotected sex. The findings, DiSalvo wrote, point to practices that parents might use to help reduce and counterbalance "the flood of memory-addling distractions."
