Article of the Week
According to Research, Poor Office Air Can Impair Decision Making
How can poor ventilation in a conference room impact the cognitive function of decision makers in the room? While there is important mainstream focus on outdoor air quality, studies from Berkeley National Laboratory and Harvard University observe how poor indoor air quality can affect decision-making processes. In the studies, participant's decision-making skills were tested in rooms of varying carbon dioxide concentrations, finding a decrease in cognitive function at higher carbon dioxide concentrations.
