Laboratory of Environmental Ergonomics
Kyushu University

Our laboratory are interesting and studying in "effects of living environment, especially thermal environment, and/or lifestyle on physiological characteristics, functions, and adaptability in human". We are also studying and considering from the view points of whether those effects are adaptive or not.

We are aimed at suggesting the "truely healthy, comfort, and adaptive" environments for human based on scientific evidence.
