At this exhibit we will be explaining the science behind "cognitive restoration", showcasing the effects of nature on the mind and brain using eye-tracking, and giving you the opportunity to tell us about the environments you find most restorative.
Do you want to know how to get more from your mind and brain?
Humans have a limited set of thought processes so when we have spent time concentrating on a task, making a decision, or solving a problem we experience 'mental fatigue'. This means our ability to remember information, focus, and make accurate decisions is impaired. Research in psychology shows that nature environments can help to 'restore' our thought processes and so if we spend more time engaging with nature we may be able to enhance our thinking!
This is an online pop-up museum exhibit that explains the science behind "cognitive restoration", showcasing the effects of nature on the mind and brain.
You can visit the exhibit yourself at any time between 20th November and 4th December. Please drop by and find out how to boost your brain with nature!
