What if indoor air quality could improve decision making?
Our Healthy Buildings research program is interested in how buildings can be leveraged to improve human performance. We’ve embarked on a multi-year research endeavor aimed at examining links between indoor air quality and cognitive function, in a series of studies, we call “The COGfx Study”.
Study 1: In the Lab
In Study 1, the research team found that higher ventilation rates, lower carbon dioxide, and lower levels of VOCs were associated with better cognitive function test scores.

Study 2: In the United States
In Study 2, the research team examined real-world building environments to determine if the green certification of high-performing buildings could result in higher cognitive function scores and health benefits for occupants.
