Nature’s Effects on Brain

The healing experience of getting closer to Nature, can also be conveyed through video.

A movie cannot replace the experience of a walk into the wilderness or be under a yard tree.
However nature videos can help calm our minds and be more concentrated while contemplating natural scenes on a screen and listening to sounds of nature.

Virtual nature is soothing too !!!

“… Swedish researcher Matilda van den Bosch stresses her subjects with a math test and a simulated job interview. When she delivers them into a virtual forest with singing birds, their heart rate soon recovers its normal rhythm. ”

“… Measurements of stress hormones, respiration, heart rate, and sweating suggest that short doses of nature—or even pictures of the natural world—can calm people down and sharpen their performance.”

The power of Nature

It is well known that walking in a field in the nature is a healthy activity. And curiously, a video with virtual landscapes also can provide us well-being. Although of course it’s not a substitute of a true one, however it is helpful to improve our concentration.

Klaus Wilhelm in his article “The power of Nature” published in Mente y Cerebro – Investigación y Ciencia, mentions that a team of British and German researchers found out that video images of nature were helpful to improve our concentration under adverse conditions.
