Come to the nexUX Meetup!

With Chang S Nam of Industrial and Systems Engineering

New brain measurement technologies: an emerging alternative for capturing experience?

New technologies such as EEG, FMRI and fNIR can measure brain activity. How well suited are they to capturing human experience? In this meetup we'll learn about the practicality and utility of these technologies for UX. 

Chang S. Nam has been an Associate Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering at North Carolina State University since 2011. He is also an associated faculty in the UNC/NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering as well as Department of Psychology. He conducts basic and applied research in human factors and ergonomics engineering, including brain-computer interfaces and rehabilitation engineering.

As always with our meetups, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to think about how we measure experience, why we measure it, and how we should be doing it.

Mostly though, we'll get to know one another, and have some fun.

If you're coming, please RSVP with the button below. Also, please forward this email to whomever you think meet be interested!
