This course offers participants contact with the theory and applications of neuroscience to architecture and design. The main subjects of neuroscience – emotion, memory, decision making, plasticity, perception, among others – will be combined with elements of architecture and design – lighting, biophilic design, colors, materials, active design, etc. 


The various fields of knowledge within NeuroArchitecture will be discussed in an articulated way, in live classes that will be recorded, handouts, exercises, always with a view to improving the user experience and the balance between functionality of the environments and well-being.

In a captivating, collaborative and thought-provoking way, Andrea, through her courses, articles, lectures and classes, makes us reflect and awaken to a more human and assertive look in the way of designing where, through the application of neuroscience concepts in architecture, we can transform environments to transform people.. Very grateful for sharing so much!


Psychologist and psychoanalyst

[...] I am a psychologist, and I have ventured to listen and learn from professionals who are not in the psi area, about their perspective on the subject. I confess: I was surprised! What an amazing course! Even though I am a psychologist, and I already have prior knowledge of neuroscience, being able to see the applicability in architecture and urbanism was simply sensational. It's a very different perspective and it warmed my heart and brightened my eyes. Therefore, the whole course pleased me: from the themes of the classes, the workload, the teaching of the teacher, the theoretical references used, and the most diverse examples that were shared by Andrea to illustrate the application of these concepts in the execution of projects. Besides all that, the class I was part of was great! Very participative and active professionals in the area. It was an intense and rich exchange of knowledge that I will use in my work (both as a psychologist and as the person responsible for a space for subletting rooms) and also in my personal life. I recommend and always recommend this course! Thanks.

The course  "Neuroscience and Architecture: From Design to User Experience" is for those who want to learn the main concepts surrounding this fascinating topic. The content is dense, has a great theoretical load based on scientific evidence, but due to the didactics and knowledge of Professor Andrea, who generously transmits her knowledge, it becomes an understandable course, even for those who have no experience in it. Our architecture is aging and we need to return to more human concepts in order to develop more assertive projects, aimed at the different actors who will use the built environment. Knowing human biology will be a competitive advantage for the professional in these new times. I highly recommend the course!

The course is excellent! Andrea is very delicate, patient, has a lot of knowledge and excellent teaching skills, characteristics that make her an excellent teacher. Congratulations!


Fortaleza dos Valos

This Neuro AU course taught by Andrea de Paiva is spectacular! Architects interested in the subject will only find clarity here. Because we are not neuroscientists and we need a general translation of the subject so that we can remain interested. Andrea has mastered the subject, teaches the course with discipline, a lot of content and a simplicity in communication that leaves neuroscience in our hands and on the tip of our tongue. She is brilliant and delivers a lot on the course.


São José do Rio Preto

During 2020, I tried to update myself with the courses in the area of ​​Health that I have been working on for over 10 years (Hospital Architecture) and among so many lives I watched Andrea talking about Neuroscience applied to Architecture, Urbanism, Interior Design; she accepted my invitation to a live and it was fantastic to discover the world of "NeuroArquitetura" popularly spread in Brazil. So I got a place, in fact disputed, for her second online course and it was a differential for my research and to prepare me better both for my master's degree and for the market in which I work. I recommend the courses, the NEUROAU website, the researches and the congresses she participates in and she is always helping us with her knowledge that she shares with great affection, I see passion in what she does and I appreciate her support as always. Kisses and success.
