Human Perception and Virtual Environments

The relationship between developing immersive virtual environments (VEs) and the study of human perception has often been interwoven in recent research. In order to most efficiently and cost-effectively improve both the hardware and the software used for VEs the human observer should be considered. In addition, many interesting scientific questions involving how humans perceive their world can be carefully controlled and investigated by using immersive VEs. This panel will present their own research in addition to briefly describing why they have chosen a multi-disciplinary approach to their research.
