Virtual Reality and Body Ownership
Mavi Sánchez Vives, Miguel Ángel Rego & Mark Farid
Location: Het Huis Theatre Hall
Virtual environments offer neuroscientists new possibilities that can simulate natural events and social interactions. VR interfaces can change our personality, but how is this possible? Are we already living in a virtual reality? We will look at processes of body ownership, body-trauma, phobias, and biases.
