With the opening of the Delta Center our lab moved from Paabel to Delta, where we now have 2 wonderful rooms and 1 computer lab equipped with modern GPU-s. The main rooms also have 6 workstations with upgraded hardware for students compared to the previous 3. There are 2 separate (demo and development) or 1 big VR area for the HTC Vive.
We got two new publications under our belt from this winter:
Vasser, M., Kängsepp, M., Magomedkerimov, M., Kilvits, K., Stafinjak, V., Kivisik, T., Vicente, R., & Aru, J. (2017). VREX: an open-source toolbox for creating 3D virtual reality experiments. BMC Psychology. DOI: 10.1186/s40359-017-0173-4
Kristjan-Julius Laak, Madis Vasser, Oliver Jared Uibopuu, Jaan Aru (2017). Attention is withdrawn from the area of the visual field where the own hand is currently moving. Neurosci Conscious 2017; 3 (1): niw025. doi: 10.1093/nc/niw025
We’ve been busy setting up our new and improved lab during the summer!
