Evaluative and neuroscience smart home studies focusing on users' experience inside the intelligent environment are still relatively scarce. However, neuroscience research holds potential in providing new and useful information on smart home users' experience, that can be widely exploited by parties involved in smart home development. Indeed, by applying a neuroscientific multi-method approach it is possible to measure the neurophysiological correlates (central and autonomic indices) of the person interacting with the smart environment. Our approach contemplates the study of human-smart environment interaction as a communication between two highly complex systems that mutually influence each other. For this reason, in the present short theoretical contribution, it is proposed a new approach that suggest studying this relational exchange in real-time by focusing on two distinct main phases of interaction. Specifically, within this approach much relevance is given to the investigation of the users' neurophysiological correlates while they are interacting with the smart environment, through wireless neuroscientific systems.
