Speaker: Professor Heidi Zeeman.
Professor Zeeman is a Principal Research Fellow at the Menzies Health Institute Queensland, at Griffith University. She is widely published in international journals and currently is writing her second book, Brain and the Built Environment: Heidi’s research has centred on understanding the experiences of people following catastrophic injury and illness and the environments in which they live, recover and work. Heidi will speak about Neurophilic design, which is a term that refers to the breadth and depth of the brain-built environment interface. Capturing healthy and injured brain functions and behaviours, and integrating this with design research, the neurophilic model explores from a holistic and evidence based perspective how people best respond to places and spaces.
