Welcome to NeuroDesign Research

NeuroDesign is the intersection between Psychology, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, Anthropology, and Design.

Neuro and Design

The NeuroDesign Research Lab is an extraordinarily timely union of the Design Paradigm (critical knowledge is context dependent) and the Science Paradigm (critical knowledge is context independent). Our interest is to create better designers by uncovering the complex cognitive processes involved in innovative design.
