How does the environment influence our mental well-being? The project ‘Uitzicht’ offers insight

Oostende (2021.04.20) – More than ever we are struggling with mental problems, stress and fatigue. The causes are very diverse, but often related to our hectic lifestyle. The effect of the environment on our mental health is unclear. That is why researchers from the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) and Ghent University are starting the project ‘Uitzicht’. The aim is to use a virtual reality experiment to map the effect of the environment on our emotions, cognitive functioning and our nervous system. We are searching for Dutch-speaking candidates for this experiment, aged between 18 and 65.
