Betty's Space & Body Perception research group studies human perception and action in immersive virtual reality. The motivations of the group are twofold: Virtual reality is a highly effective tool for manipulating the visual body, the contents of the visual world and actions within it. At the same time, the scientific study of perception and action in virtual environments has clear implications for the design specifications of virtual reality software and technology.
