Buildings and Brains

Aalia Wayfare's Radio Weblog points to an interesting article about the use of neuroscientific principles in architectual design in its post: Neuroscience and Architecture.

Architectual niche interest in brain function, health, and disease, goes back at least twenty years (if not longer) in the design of, for example, hospitals and living facilities for those with Alzheimer disease and other dementia-causing neurodegenerative processes. This interest has yet to become a mainstream one in the profession. However, interest continues to grow.

The article pointed to above provides a decent overview.

Visit the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture for additional information.
