With the current rising temperatures how does the heat affect our brain's ability to perform.
As organisations become more complex and dynamic, our ability to learn from experience becomes more important. This is known as our ‘learning agility’. But before people can become agile learners, they need to optimise the key drivers that influence brain performance: brain fitness, sleep, stress, diet, mindset, movement, cognitive skills, and physical environment. People also need to integrate all the neurophysiological attributes that affect their learning agility and learning ability – a competence referred to as neuro-agility. Developing this is a prerequisite for the brain to function at optimum level as one integrated system without any neurological hindrances. An important ergonomic factor having an influence on the brain is temperature. During summer, we tend to seek cooler environments, as this is a natural response of our bodies to regulate our internal temperatures.
