Zoom Fatigue and Brain Waves

Could our brain waves be the reason for Zoom Fatigue?

Julie Boland, a professor of Psychology and Linguistics at the University of Michigan, conducted research that potentially links out-of-sync brain waves and the challenges of Zoom Fatigue.

In her research, she was able to show that transition times between speakers were 3.5 times higher when talking over Zoom vs. in-person, and that speakers held the floor for longer on Zoom calls. That disruption in how we naturally have conversations could be a major factor in the fatigue many of us feel when using Zoom.

The good news? Exercise is good for your brain! Try and see the results in reduced fatigue and stress - your brain will thank you.
