Brain activation in virtual reality for attention guidance

Virtual Reality (VR) not only offers great opportunities in terms of entertainment, it is also widely applicable in the field of attention guidance, medicine and psychology. The distinction between VR and ordinary media is the 360$$^∘ $$ - also known …

A novel semi-immersive virtual reality visuo-motor task activates ventrolateral prefrontal cortex: A functional near-infrared spectroscopy study

Objective. In the last few years, the interest in applying virtual reality systems for neurorehabilitation is increasing. Their compatibility with neuroimaging techniques, such as functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), allows for the …

Prefrontal cortex activation upon a demanding virtual hand-controlled task: A new frontier for neuroergonomics

Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a non-invasive vascular-based functional neuroimaging technology that can assess, simultaneously from multiple cortical areas, concentration changes in oxygenated-deoxygenated hemoglobin at the level …
