Eve Edelstein Continues a Busy Schedule in 2013

 Neuroscientist, designer, and SoA Associate Professor Eve Edelstein will present her paper Expanding the Universe of Design at the 28th Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference in San Diego later this month.

Eve has also been invited to present (with architectural photographer Mike Torrey) The Neuroscience of Extraordinary Places: Machu Picchu and the Great Wall at the Friends of San Diego Architecture on March 16th. Eve was asked to speak following talk the two gave at the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture Symposium last year. She will use Machu Picchu and the Great Wall of China as examples in describing how brain processes may influence our reaction to design and what this means to today’s architects. They’ll describe research on sensory, motor, and cognitive reactions to architecture and how such knowledge may be used to formulate principles applicable to the enhancement of architectural design.

In July, Eve will present her paper Research-Based Salutogenic Design: New Methods for the Creation of Healthy Environments at the 9th World Congress on Design and Health in Brisbane, Australia. The paper is one of a limited number that were selected anonymously by the scientific committee for oral presentation at the conference.

Great work, Eve!
