[Research] HCI forgets about psychology
Interesting post by Rashmi about this fact: new ideas from psychology are hardly reaching HCI.
A few decades ago, there was a rapid influx of new ideas from psychology into HCI. (...) Its like the HCI psychology folk have collective amnesia for research in the 10-15 years (...)

Neurodesign... well let's see. IT's true that since I left cognitive science (with hardcore neuro stuff), I did not think a lot about how it could be incorporated into HCI. One of the reason for this is the fact that it's already difficult to put together psychology, linguistics, design and ergonomics, mixed with ethnography and other methods...
