Neuroscience Research of Design Features in Learning Space

Sep 23, 2016

This project strives to understand how neuroscience research can inform the design process in the future, especially in learning spaces, with the attempt to answer the following questions:
What are the possible environmental features in learning spaces that can help inform the design process, and what types of neuroscience data can be analyzed and applied?
How will the design process in the field of architecture change as we gain access to information on those features through neuroscience research?

In the analysis, various physical elements in a classroom setting were identified. For each element, existing studies were documented, as well as potential behavioral, cognitive, and neurological studies that can be used to inform the design process.
