Architectural settings are places in which human activity occurs—including living, learning, healing, work, and worship. The practice of architecture has gone through enormous changes in the past century, including the development of tools for analysis and design based on physics, but it is now in need of a new paradigm. Neuroscience research has the potential to create a much-needed knowledge base for this new paradigm. The example of research by Dr. Stanley Graven on the design of neo-natal care units is cited in here. This book strives to build intellectual bridges between architecture and neuroscience.
