Neurogenesis: How Neuroscience can Drive Creative Approaches to Designing for Aging

What if we knew that enriched environments that reduce stress and promote creativity can improve our cognitive function and keep our brain healthy, just as good food and exercise keeps the body healthy? What if we could take that complex science and translate it, not into guidelines or prescriptions, but a playbook for active engagement with stakeholders, owners, and designers? What if we could design, not for aging, but neurogenesis (which is the process for how neurons are formed in the brain and enable brain/body health)? Join these presenters on a journey from neuroscientific evidence to design innovation and share with them your insights as they share theirs.
