|Linking innovations in immersive technologies with scientific progress in neuroscience of consciousness and perception, and translating this knowledge to cognitive enhancement and healthcare applications.|
The future of immersive technologies driven by scientific knowledge about the brain
Designed to remove current gaps between recordings of reality and artificial re-experiencing of life events, the Reality Substitution Machine applies insights and techniques from cognitive neuroscience to trick the brain into believing in alternative virtual realities.
- Immersive technologies: capturing reality and augmenting human experience with artificial realities, blending recorded and generated life events.
- Neuroscientific knowledge: how the brain perceives reality through bodily experiences, vision and sound.
- Applications: neuroscience research, virtual reality therapy, cognitive enhancement and future neurological treatments.
