The Development of Science and Technology May Change People’s Sense of Identity-Taking the Research in Neuroscience as the Theoretical Basis

Ming Chen
Abstract—The development of science and technology increases people's exposure to large amounts of information and data. Information determines the mode of operation and output of the brain; consciousness is a product of the brain. Meanwhile, as a process of understanding and comprehension, consciousness serves as the basis for the formation of identity. So in a way, information can determine people's idea of identity. Nowadays, the development of science and technology brings a sharp increase in the quantity of information. Thus, the final result can be the change in people's identity. Brain Science (Neuroscience) can be used as a medium and an analytic approach and methods in the study of human identity in this new information era.
