VR Maze in Zero Gravity

Steve Boxall/ZERO-G

The brain uses space to index, organize, and retrieve memories. However, our sense of space depends on our perception of gravity. We plan to test and understand the effect of altering gravity on human memory. Our experiment consists of a virtual reality experience that exposes the user to a sequence of small random mazes. We will compare the results of the experiment under different gravitational conditions.
