Wild Cities: What neuroscience reveals about the Lake District

National Geographic explorer Dan Raven-Ellison loves the Lake District, so as part of his mission to show why sustainable cities need wild spaces as well as smart technology, we took a look inside his brain as he walked across it. Using a portable electroencephalography (EEG) device we compared what his brain activity tells us with Dan’s own account of his experiences. Click on the orange dots to explore Dan's journey, and drag your cursor across the emotional timeline for a more detailed view of his brain activity.
