Faculty mentor: Emily Scott

This project explores the effects prolonged nature exposure has on humans. A lot of prior research that demonstrates the benefits on nature has been limited to lab simulated settings, so this project immerses participants in nature throughout a 5 day trip. In which, we explored how it influenced human biomarkers for stress. Results were surprising, indicated nature did not alleviate stress according to the biomarker we used, heart-rate variability.
