The Computational Neuropsychology and Simulation (CNS) lab has teamed up with Digital Media Works and ClinicaVR to develop and validate a virtual apartment. Participants are immersed in the virtual apartment (living room, bedroom, kitchen, etc) and perform various tasks to assess their neurocognitive processing. Participants are able to look 360° around themselves and explore the environment by turning their heads.
