Researcher, Brain-Computer Interface Laboratory, Colorado State University

Stephanie Scott serves a communications manager for The Brain-Computer Interface Laboratory at Colorado State University, and is a graduate student researcher and instructor within the Journalism and Media Communications Department at CSU. Her work involves developing more effective communication strategies related to BCI systems, more specifically, whether visual communication methods can help audiences understand complex health technologies and complicated health issues. Through several neuroimaging projects, her work evaluates whether a patient -produced aesthetic of interactions conducted with the use of these complex health communication systems (BCI), can generate meaningful rehabilitation efforts. Additionally, this research examines whether visual representations of these interactions can produce a measurable effect towards influencing attitudes, generating awareness, and reducing anxiety and/or stigma among general publics, as well as among populations of potential future BCI users.
