Hunter and colleagues studied how neighborhood design influences resident actions.
Increase Physical Activity
What sorts of design features encourage people to go outdoors and walk around their neighborhoods, towns and cities? Neuroscience research supplies answers to that question while also making it clear that walking can help us think more clearly, creatively, and productively, all as we burn calories.
Being active indoors is as good for our minds as it is for our waistlines. It can help us think more clearly, creatively, and productively, for example, all while we burn calories. Neuroscientists have determined how design can spur people to be physically active inside.
Baobeid and teammates built on earlier research to investigate what makes an area walkable.
Key effects of light intensity
Music, exercise, and thinking hard
Recently released research confirms the value of design that encourages movement.
Koo and teammates researched how design can enhance walkability.
Zhu and colleagues conducted a literature review and report on how the design of the physical work environment, at three different scales, can boost physical activity (PA) among employees.
