Positive neurological effects of sky photos



Texas Tech’s College of Human Sciences is partnering with Sky Factory Australia to study the “effects of virtual skylights on hospital patients.”

The initial study will generate brain maps of the neural pathways and regions associated with patient’s perception of the SkyCeilings™ unique imagery.

Read about it in a Texas Tech press release and on Sky Factory’s website which includes some of the brain scan imagery.

Initial analysis of the brain maps indicates that the photographic sky compositions shared all of the characteristic neural activations of other positive images, while, additionally, activating several other unique brain regions. Of particular interest to the researchers were the activations found in the cerebellum.
