Visualizing Alzheimer's Disease: A Classroom Collaboration of Design and Science
Thursday, 10:15 - 10:30 am
Room 502B

This paper reports on exploration of visualization techniques through interdisciplinary development of a prototype biological data visualization tool at the University of Cincinnati. Undergraduate digital design students under the combined instruction of design and scientific research faculty formed collaborative teams to develop a prototype visual-verbal, web-based, dynamic information model (DISPLAY) for extracting, comparing, and manipulating biological data related to Alzheimer's Disease at various hierarchical levels and across fields of study. Although the data for the prototype display were related to Alzheimer's Disease, the project was designed to identify and explore principles and techniques applicable to the visualization of all types of biological data.
