The environment can significantly affect they way we feel and behave. This is what tells us a neuroscientific model called the “neuroaesthetic triad”*. According to this model, three large-scale systems generate aesthetic experiences: sensory-motor, knowledge-meaning, and emotion-valuation systems. With this awareness, we can consciously shape spaces that affect our behavior and emotions.

The subject of neurodiversity is gaining importance. Its presence in public discourse and social media is growing (and this is an indicator of the awareness of future generations!). A survey was conducted, and its results analyzed to examine the state of knowledge of people from the business world. They were asked about real activities undertaken in their organizations. The results allowed putting forward some theses.
The numbers don’t lie: we have great motivation and space to make significant change.
