Human 3d Motion simulator
This 6-degrees-of-freedom motion platform moves people around in a controlled manner to stimulate their 'vestibular' sense (sense of balance). Virtual reality (VR) glasses provide simultaneous visual stimulation. Together, this system is used to investigate the brain mechanisms of multisensory processing, and perceptual decision making.
The human motion simulator is used to test perception of one’s own motion in space. It comprises a 6-degrees-of-freedom motion platform (Moog Inc.) to stimulate the human vestibular system in a controlled manner. With simultaneous visual motion simulation using 3D virtual reality glasses, and EEG brain recordings we probe the neural bases of multisensory processing, spatial perception and perceptual decision-making, in health and disease.
