Creating simulated environments and Virtual Reality (VR) experiments is easy with tools from BIOPAC Systems and Worldviz VR. These tools allow researchers to conduct experiments while combining simulations with physiological data and biofeedback. When starting these experiments, researchers often ask: What options are available? What equipment do I need? How do I create a virtual environment? How do I get started?
This technical showcase demonstrates a series of VR and computer simulations along with resources on how to create interactive experiments. Join us to learn these techniques and creative ways to combine physiology data collection, VR, and biofeedback.
What You Will Learn
Possibilities of using computer and VR simulations in research
Creative combinations of physiological recording and VR
Tracking cognitive processes with fNIR
Foundations for developing your first experiment
Plus, we’ll do a live demo on how to create a virtual environment for physiology experiments and more.
Alex Dimov (BIOPAC Systems, Inc.) has been teaching workshops on the topic of physiological data acquisition and analysis for nearly 15 years. While at UC Santa Barbara he was an instructor for The Advanced Training Institute for Virtual Reality in Social Psychology. He joined BIOPAC as an application specialist and now oversees European Sales for BIOPAC.
