The paper presents a pilot interdisciplinary research study carried out as a step towards understanding the neurological basis of design thinking. The study involved functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of volunteers while performing design and problem-solving tasks. The findings suggest that design and problem solving involve distinct cognitive functions associated with distinct brain networks. The paper introduces the methodology, presents the findings, and discusses the potential role of brain imaging in design research
