Next eBook: The New Era of Neuro-Oriented Approach

Thanks for all your amazing support. Truly appreciate everyone’s thoughts and feedback.

As we speak, I am working on a second (short) eBook, this time focusing more on potential applications and implications of incorporating neuroscience within non-neuroscience disciplines, such as Robotics, AI, NN, various business, etc.

This eBook also covers another new topic that I would like to introduce here: the (new) neuro-oriented era. When I was doing the Lit Review of my thesis, I stumbled upon something very interesting. Going back a couple of decades, in the field of Information Science, various research approaches (or era if you will) appeared to emerge.

These approaches could be categorized into the 1) System-oriented approach, 2) User-oriented approach, 3) Cognitive-oriented approach, and 4) Emotion-oriented approach.

Interestingly, not much existed within neuroscience related approach within the field of Information Science.

Therefore, in my thesis, I dedicated a section into suggesting/introducing a (follow up) era and Neuro-oriented approach. While there are many amazing scientists and people in the field who are working on these topics, we are still in the infancy of this era… there is much more to be learned and think about.

Please stay tuned for the upcoming (short) eBook.

 


Neuroscience improving life experiences! Or just for fun 😉

In my previous blog post, I talked briefly about changing/controlling brainwaves and emotions in research labs (e.g. in UX research), how to do it and why you’d want to do that.

In this post, I briefly share about these brainwaves for other purposes, such as changing brainwaves and/or emotions to get to your peak performance, increase the focus level, or simply get to relaxing and/or sleeping modes.

Alpha, beta, and gamma waves are the one you’d want to learn more about. These are just names of categorizing the brainwaves based on frequencies. The label itself has not meaning but the underlying frequencies do! So, don’t get hung up on the categories of brainwaves but learn the underlying characteristics of these…
