Nature benefits revisited: likeability

Despite a wealth of literature on the beneficial effects of nature on human well-being, their underlying relationship has remained largely intractable to scientific study. In this study, we establish a relationship between liking and cognitive load for nature and urban visual scenes, using human gait kinematics as a measure for cognitive load. Data include 3D motion capture data of human gait and behavioural data.
