Neural-Architecture: Incorporating Clinical Expertise in Brain-based Design Principles

Sep 23, 2016

This research was approached by reviewing the wide range of neurological, neurosurgical, psychiatric and psychological conditions that may be encountered at a clinical neuroscience facility. Guidelines focused on how design might support many comorbid medical, physiological, cognitive, sensory, perceptual, behavioral, and mobility conditions. The space needed for providers to safely examine patients with limited mobility was also considered. Neural design principles may be applied within and beyond healthcare settings to meet the needs of the world’s aging populous and the increasing prevalence of neurological disorders.
