What effects do urban environments have on city dwellers? The observation of brain activity in people who move freely in the city promises answers. At the interdisciplinary salon of the Forum Neurourbanism on September 17th, neuroscientist Prof. Dr. Klaus Gramann, from the Department of Biopsychology and Neuroergonomics at the Technische Universität Berlin, explains his research method in his lecture titled “Mobile Brain Imaging in Neurourbanism – Challenges and Opportunities”. At the Salon, neuroscientists, psychologists, and urban researchers will discuss the extent to which this research approach offers opportunities for neurourbanism and neuroarchitecture and is suitable for investigating urban stressors.
With its regular salons, the interdisciplinary forum has offered a discussion platform for the research field of neurourbanism since 2015.
