The UnBroken Podcast is a call to action to create a different direction, dialogue, and narrative for your life. Dr Rachel Taylor discusses neuroarchitecture, and how manipulating our environment helps us build better brains. That’s coming up in this episode, sponsored by A Podcast Company.
Neuroarchitecture combines neuroscience and architecture, and deals with how the built environment either supports or detracts from a person’s experience. The environment can either stimulate the brain and make it more useful and flexible, or it can shrink it, making it not as adaptable.
The environment has such a huge effect on the brain because the brain interprets, analyzes, and reconstructs the space surrounding it. It’s essential to surround ourselves with things that generate healthy stimulation, and this includes the aesthetics – we have to look at the symbolic aspects within that.
