Sep 23, 2016

This research focuses on experiences in architectural and urban settings in the city of Barcelona. In this experiment, two subjects are brain mapped by use of portable EEG neuro-headset to analyze brainwaves and detect different degrees of emotions. This paper aims at explaining different effects of architectural elements (Water, Ceiling, Height, Natural Light, Colors and Styles) on emotions (Engagement, Excitement, Interest, Relaxation and Stress).
