Following this new trend, this book systematically explains well developed theories in cognitive science, their applications, and future possible directions of utilizing cognitive science in design. From explaining the fundamental concepts of cognition, elaborating advanced research methodologies, and discussing individual design thinking and creative processes through psychological experiments; phenomenon of design cognition should be understood better. Other studies, which embrace human cognition, including artificial intelligence and neuroscience are also covered briefly in this book to catch up.
