An fMRI-Based Exploration of Neural Correlates of the ‘Formal’ Environmental Attributes of Healthcare Settings
This study explores neural activation in adult brains in response to visual stimulus containing formal environmental attributes. This study focuses on emotional impact of visual stimuli and bridges the evidence between environmental psychology and neuroscience to identify specific visual properties that elicit emotional responses. This study investigates a particular visual property “contours” and explores it within the theoretical paradigm of neuro-architecture to generate specific hypotheses for architecture and neuroscience. This research explores the potential influence of the contour information of meaningful healthcare settings on amygdala activation.
