Symposium

Announcement of the Human Environment Design Department Symposium "Science and Design 4

March 17th, 2021

The Kyushu University Center for Designed Futures  has continuously held the “Science and Design” symposium. This time, the theme is “Measuring Brain Function,” and will we hold it online.
Humans receive information from the environment through various sensory organs and act on that information. In many cases, information from the environment is processed somehow in the brain, and the exploration of brain function in this processing process is an area of great interest in science. It is also essential to understand how to measure and apply brain functions to build a better relationship between humans and the environment. In this lecture, we would like to explore the fascination of brain function measurement and its applications through the talks of specialized brain function measurement people.
We look forward to your participation in this symposium.
