Abstract: This poster reports the preliminary results of an on-going near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) study conducted to examine cortical response to visual motion typically found in Virtual Reality (VR) applications. Comparing to watching a grey background, navigating through a virtual tunnel increased levels of oxygenated haemoglobin in visual cortex (around area V3). Potential benefits of the finding for reducing cybersickness are discussed.
