This paper presents results from an experiment to determine
brain activation differences between problem-solving and
designing of industrial designers. The study adopted and
extended the tasks described in a prior fMRI study of design
cognition and measured brain activation using EEG. The
experiment consists of 4 tasks: problem-solving, basic design
and open design using a tangible interface plus a fourth design
task using sketching. Statistical analyses indicate increased
activation when designing compared to problem-solving.
Preliminary results from bringing neuroscience methods to
design research is contributing to a better understanding of the
emergent field of design neurocognition.
