In this study, EEG, HRV, and Vibra image were compared and analyzed in the environmental test room due to stimulation of aroma and color temperature. The condition of the environmental test room was in temperature $25[^{\circ}C]$, relative humidity 50[RH%], air current speed 0.02[m/s] and illuminance 1000[lux] with setting up different sensory stimulation condition which are before exposure, single-sensory stimulation of Jasmine scent, single-sensory stimulation of RED color lighting, and multi-sensory stimulation of Jasmine scent and RED color lighting. The result of this study, at multi-sensory stimulation of Jasmine scent and RED color lighting, relative $S{\alpha}$ wave, SEF50, $SMR/{\theta}$ and SDNN were revitalized, and both sides ${\alpha}$ wave asymmetry index, stress index, fatigue degree, and HRT were decreased. Also, Viba image of tension/anxiety and stress were declined. Therefore multi-sensory stimulation of Jasmine scent and RED color lighting effects to increase the Neuro-energy like amenity, productivity of work efficiency, and concentration.

본 논문은 온도 $25[^{\circ}C]$, 상대습도 50[RH%], 조도 1,000[lux] 및 기류 속도 0.02[m/sec]의 동일한 조건의 항온 항습실에서 감각자극에 노출되기 전, 쟈스민 향기 및 RED 조명의 단일감각자극, 쟈스민 향기와 RED 조명을 동시에 노출시킨 다감각 자극 변화에 따른 EEG, 학습능력, HRV 및 진동이미지를 측정하여 쾌적성, 집중력, 신체적 및 심리적 안정의 변화를 분석하였다. 연구결과 쟈스민 향기와 RED 조명의 다감각자극에서 상대 $S{\alpha}$파, SEF50, $SMR/{\theta}$ 및 SDNN이 향상되었고, 비대칭지수 $A_2$, 스트레스지수, 피로도 및 HRT는 감소하였다. 또한, 진동이미지의 긴장/불안과 스트레스는 감소하였다. 따라서 쟈스민 향기와 RED 조명의 다감각자극이 쾌적성, 작업능률의 생산성 및 주의집중력과 같은 뉴로에너지를 향상시키기 위하여 효과적인 것을 알 수 있었다.
