Goals

Our objective is to study the effects of indoor wooden materials in an experimental testing platform on 1) the human restoration and cognitive load with psychophysiological measurements and 2) the work vision and eye health related to computer work stress.

Outputs

We will construct the testing platform by “house-hunting”, designing and constructing the test rooms to study the health effects of indoor wooden materials. We will develop qualitative and quantitative methods to measure volatile organic compound (VOC) content and hygroscopic effects attributable to different wood materials. We will apply research funding for a multidisciplinary consortium
