Using Neuroscience to Tailor Visual Environments for Infants and Children
There has been a surge of interest in the effects of the environment on physical and mental health. The interest in the effects of the environment on physical and mental health has broadened from a focus on the external environment to include the internal environment of personal living spaces. In this applied project, the researchers created a set of designs for infant and children’s living spaces and a system to match and tailor them to the individual. The scheme is grounded in neuroscientific and behavioral data regarding responses to visual stimuli. Based on assessments, living space recommendations were made for each child to complement his or her individual temperament.
