In Study 1, the research team found cognitive function test scores doubled when participants were in simulated green building environments with enhanced ventilation as opposed to conventional building environments.
In Study 2, the research team examined real-world building environments to understand if the green certification of high-performing buildings could result in cognitive function scores and health benefits for occupants.
