Information Overload is a state in which individuals have a vast amount of information that is readily available, almost instantaneously, without mechanisms to check the validity of the content and the potential risk of misinformation. The Information Age and growing excess of digitally available information amplifies the problem of Information Overload, which handicaps employees’ productivity and well-being.This dissertation employs a non invasive customer oriented EEG sensor to explore how Information Overload affects the human brain, its executive parts and its cognitive functions and develops a theoretical mechanism for understanding the Information Overload phenomena.
