Viewing Events

(IRB#: IRB_00170628)

The purpose of this study is to determine what people remember from experiences they have in Virtual Reality. We will ask you demographic questions and about your experience with VR. You will view a fictional park scenario presented through a virtual reality (VR) headset, and we will measure where you look and your physiological responses (e.g., heart rate, perspiration) using non-invasive wearable technology. Then we will ask you about the video. Participation in the study requires one study visit and should last up to an hour. Participants will be compensated for their time.
