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.
Danielle is a PhD in cognitive psychology and the co-founder of Oscillations. She applies her research to create virtual reality experiences that interface with users’ brain activity. These experiences feature innovative performance art and respond to users’ thoughts and emotions to simulate lucid dreaming.
