    What are the key insights that modern neuroscience can provide for VR? This talk covers three areas that present huge opportunities and challenges to VR developers: immersion, motion, and emotion. Each is discussed in terms of the basic neuroscience behind it, advance techniques to take it to new levels, and near-future opportunities. The context is a designer's view of the relevant science necessary for effective use of VR, practical rather than academic, supported by examples and references for those interested in more in-depth information.


    Attendees will gain practical understanding of how the interaction of the eye, brain, and inner ear contribute to the perception of immersion, motion, and emotion in VR, and how to use that understanding to create more effective games and learning applications in VR.

    Intended Audience

    Audience is anyone with a strong interest in how neuroscience can help us make better VR titles, and some experience in working on VR. The focus is on tangible insights that can be used to make VR titles more effective and natural for users.
