Abstract

A visit to a museum is generally a welcome treat. As we experience a museum our brain constructs its own internal museum of the mind to help us navigate, explore, and form the memories we live our lives by. This process is fundamentally guided by the architecture of the space and its influence on our perceptions and expectations. In this chapter we will present recent discoveries of how the brain represents and remembers space and use this understanding to create a starting point for a journey we are beginning; the relation of architecture to neuroscience.
