Rewriting the brain: with design and technology

3 hrs Workshop | Category: Experiences for Emergent Tech | Target Audience: Design professionals, Developers, Technology Experts.

The human brain is the softest and the most malleable part of the human body. Over the years research has shown how the brain has developed and adapted to its changing environment. At a microcellular level, the complex network of nerve cells that make up the important parts of the brain, actually change in response to certain experiences and stimuli.

In the workshop we will be discussing the advancements in technology, brain pattern changes, and their impact. A good example of this kind of change is, the emergence of reading encouraged our brains to be focused and imaginative. In contrast, the rise of the Internet is strengthening our ability to scan information rapidly and efficiently. As designers and technologists its our responsibility to understand the implications of our creations and how to use our skills to create the right stimuli.
