The Making Good Podcast
Healthy habitats: neuroscience & built environment, with Araceli Camargo
This week’s guest is Araceli Camargo (@aracelicamargo_), cognitive neuroscientist with @TheCentricLab in London. Araceli joined me to talk about the emerging role of neuroscience in explaining how built environments can create pathologies in the people that live in them and what that means for the people affected. We talked about how every planner, architect, consultant and developer working in ways that shape the built environment are also - whether they know it or not - healthcare practitioners, and how this can and will increasingly shape the way we design and build the places that we live.
- What exactly is neuroscience, and how does it help us understand how people experience their (built) environment
- What is biological inequality, how has it arisen and what are strategies for tackling it?
- Why health isnt only (or even mainly) the absence of illness
- Why construction phase is as critical as post-occupancy
- Blame and self-esteem: what the pandemic has revealed about the role of authority and infrastructure in health outcomes, and what that suggests about personal responsibility for health outcomes
