For the past three months, we have been working with Lab visitors to test the psychological effects of public spaces near the Lab. Come and hear about the early results from the experiment. Learn how neuroscience has begun to influence architecture and design. Join panelists as they brainstorm new experiments and recommendations for happier spaces. With Dr. Colin Ellard, author of You Are Here: Why We Can Find Our Way to the Moon, but Get Lost in the Mall, Dr. Esther Sternberg, author of Healing Spaces: The Science of Place and Well-Being, Lab Team member Charles Montgomery, and others.
