Using Virtual Reality To Get Onto the Same Neural Wavelength

Pioneering neuroscience has revealed that successful communication literally entails being on the same neural wavelength. This neural synchrony, in turn, enhances perspective taking, interpersonal dynamics, and even aesthetic appreciation. Virtual reality experiences that are integrated with brain-controlled interfaces offer a powerful new tool for situating creators and users onto the same neural wavelength. This talk will showcase (1) exciting collaborations happening in the VR space between neuroscientists, artists, and technologists, and (2) research findings that are shaping the medium of virtual reality.
