Measuring the Engineers’ Brain: Using Cognitive Neuroscience to Better Understand the Formation of Engineering Design and Problem Solving Skills Participants

The Orb is a data visualization showcasing research projects associated with the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT) at Virginia Tech. Descriptions and keywords for the projects are analyzed for their “connectedness” to other projects. Arcing lines radiate out from any selected project and show weighted connections of up to 10 related projects. Viewers can also click on titles of the projects to read a short description or watch short summary videos.
