Knowledge Applied


Mar 12, 2018

It’s no surprise that a little nature can go a long way in making people feel better. But the research of environmental psychologist Marc Berman, assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Chicago, shows that adding trees to a city can have a significant impact on a person’s health and happiness.

On this episode of Knowledge Applied, Berman shares how he measured the effect that trees have on the residents of Toronto, talks about how his lab is mapping brains interacting with nature, and discusses a new app which will help people living in cities find their own urban nature experiences.
