Abstract or Description:

The frontiers of design and neuroscience are rapidly shifting as a result of recent advances in neuro-technologies, and the pivotal role user experience design plays across a wide range of analogue and digital applications at individual, community, and global level. These applications range from learning and education interventions to innovation of large-scale healthcare options. Every day new frontiers are forged as neurobiologists and cognitive scientists look beyond the mere structure-function neuronal correlations of thought, emotion, and behaviour. This has direct impact for design research and design-led probe development. Translating this growing evidence-base through a mind well-trained in critical, rigorous, and creative thinking, and an attitude of equitable collaboration and mutual respect, heralds immense potential for unfolding ground-breaking design probe applications through the intersection of neuroscience and design.
