A large team lead by Jackson determined that languages vary in how they link emotions; their findings may be useful to people conducting research in different parts of the world, for example.
Design Process and Issues
People in virtual reality environments regularly teleport from place to place and a team lead by Cherep studied how those movements should take place.
Buruck lead a team that linked job control and chronic lower back pain (CLBP).
Fondren, Swierk, and Putman investigated links between the colors we wear and how animals who see those colors behave.
Browning and colleagues have determined that virtual nature experiences can have the same effects on mental health as “real” ones.
Jung, Mood, and Nelson identified one of the reasons that users’ actual in-place experiences may not align with what other people anticipate they will be.
Wi-Fi information crucial
The cognitive science research is clear – using natural elements (for example, materials, sounds, light, plants, fresh air, and water) in interior spaces has positive consequences for how people think and behave. What scientists have learned about nature-based experiences can inform design that enhances wellbeing and cognitive performance and encourages worthwhile life experiences.
Many notable studies with useful findings were published during 2019. The most significant 87 of them, pertinent to projects focused on issues ranging from acoustics to zoo design, are highlighted in this article.
