The present and future of virtual reality news and technology

6. VR has become a powerful tool for neuroscience research. Dori Grijseels, a University of Sussex Ph.D. Student, writes that VR has many advantages for researchers. "For one, the subject does not have to physically move for the world around them to change. This makes it easier to study the brain since techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can only be used on stationary subjects. There are, however, still many issues with the use of the technology - such as the limited number of senses it works on and a lack of proprioception (the feedback you get from your body about the position of your limbs). Grijseels concludes that we should not readily accept conclusions from VR studies without first considering how the use of VR may have affected them. She says hopefully, the differences in brain activity between VR and the real world will also become smaller as methods and immersive technologies become more sophisticated. – MASSIVE SCIENCE
