New DFG project: Audio-visual perception in virtual and real 3D environments

Written by Stephan Getzmann

Virtual realities (VR) open up completely new possibilities for psychological experiments compared to classical laboratory environments. However, it must be ensured that virtual environments represent reality as validly as possible. This will be investigated in a new research project at IfADo within the DFG priority program “Audictive”:  The focus is on spatial perception and attention in three-dimensional space.

New research laboratory: Work research at IfADo strikes out in a new direction

Written by Verena Kemmler

The IfADo research is on the move: with a Gait Real-Time Analysis Interactive Lab (GRAIL). In it, the gait movement of the entire body can be analyzed in three dimensions in a virtual environment. The laboratory enables researchers to analyze phenomena of human information processing while moving. “The GRAIL allows us new and realistic research approaches“, says Prof. Dr. Gerhard Rinkenauer.
