Are you a neuroscientist interested in studying how memories are created and how we use memory to navigate in space? Or a neurologist who would like to develop non-invasive methods for early detection of neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other forms of dementia?
Perhaps you are a neuropsychologist who would like to understand the neurophysiological manifestations of phobias and PTSS and design better treatment strategies? Or maybe a neuromarketing researcher who would like to study how our mind responds to certain stimuli on the neurophysiological and neurofunctional level to apply this knowledge to marketing applications?
The major obstacle in combining modern VR and eye-tracking technology with MR imaging is the interference such devices cause when placed inside a strong magnetic field. The electronics inside the VR goggles and eye-tracking cameras can significantly degrade MR image quality, or worse, make such equipment unsafe for use.
Many past studies that have explored VR scenarios in combination with fMRI (Voermans et al. 2004; Kim & Maguire 2019; Speirs & Maguire 2006) have made use of projectors and 2D screens to present the visual stimuli.
The use of VR for creating 3D immersive environments is proven in itself to be an advantage over 2D representations in a number of applications (Gaebler et al. 2014; Wiederhold et al. 2008).
The NordicNeuroLab VisualSystem HD (VSHD) solves these problems. Shielded electronics and MR-safe materials make the VSHD MR-conditional for use at field strengths up to 3T.
