Study: Being In Nature Boosts Brain Function

Recommended Posts

This reminds me of a related study that showed that even in dangerous situations such high vehicle traffic areas peoples' attention was drawn to animals. The authors speculated that in nature other animals are one of the biggest hazards and, so, we have evolved to pay attention to them. It would also explain why so many cats and dogs quickly spot the smallest of animals in their proximity yet never seem to understand the danger moving vehicles present.


It also reminds me of someone I met who, like me, lived in Hawaii for over five years. We both left because no matter how clean and beautiful the environment it was like living on mars for us. Both of us needed the hardwood trees and abundant life of the apalachian mountains to feel most at home.
