Architectural Science Review

Special Issue on 'Cognition and Neuroscience in Architecture' | Call for Papers | Deadline: 1 December, 2019


Contributions are sought for consideration in a Special Issue of Architectural Science Review that focuses on the theme of Cognition and Neuroscience in Architecture. 

While the environmental psychology literature has studied questions of human cognition and perception in the design of buildings and places for decades, there has been an explosion of research in cognition and neuroscience in recent years.  This new knowledge has drastically changed scientists’ understanding of how people experience places around them, yet few of these findings have been employed or expanded upon by architectural scholars in their own research. 

This Special Issue seeks to collect papers that do just that, drawing on the latest cognitive and neuroscience knowledge and methods to understand and improve the practice of architecture and planning.
