Virtual Reality as a Tool for Cognitive Science

Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen
Friday January 13th, 2017


This workshop is organized to celebrate the official opening of our new Virtual Reality Cave in which we study human language and communication using behavioral, eye tracking, motion tracking, and electrophysiological measures.

The workshop will bring together influential researchers from different fields of cognitive science who have played an important role in promoting VR as a tool to study fundamental scientific questions and their real-life applications. We will discuss what VR has brought us in the past decades and would like to explore its possibilities to answer unresolved questions in cognitive science as technology keeps advancing.


The workshop is open to everyone interested and free of charge, but please register.
