The Science Library is curated collection of topics that underpin and drive our work.
Welcome to our Science Library, an open source database of themes seen through the lens neuroscience. We’ve made these links and translations available to help create healthier and more equitable habitats. We want to encourage the mobility of well sourced academic science to people who may not be able to access it or would like a more scientific view to solving their challenge.
If you are an indigenous scientist or representing threatened, disadvantaged and displaced groups we will endeavour to refine the themes here to your support your challenge on a pro-bono basis. We firmly believe that many of our habitat challenges will be solved using indigenous technology and sciences, therefore are keen to help support.
All we ask is that you quote the sources and scientists we have collaborated to make this happen.
POVERTY, HOMELESSNESS & PTSD
Poverty and homelessness are culturally perceived through the lenses of economics and politics. However, as neuroscience advances, we are starting to understand that there is a crucial biological aspect to poverty. This evidence will allow us to understand the long term mental and physical health implications of poverty and homelessness.
INFRASTRUCTURE & INEQUALITY
The distribution of urban infrastructure leads to inequality of experience in cities. Often resulting in environmental racism as certain communities face the pollution and stressor consequences of unnecessary movements.
WELLBEING & STRESS
At Centric Lab we define ‘wellbeing’ as a constantly adaptive process by which we aim to reach physical and mental homeostasis or equilibrium. Homeostasis is maintained by using mental, social and physical resources to react to mental, social, and physical challenges presented to us by our environment.
