Spatial Orientation in Virtual Environments: Background Considerations and Experiments

  title={Spatial Orientation in Virtual Environments: Background Considerations and Experiments},

  booktitle={Spatial Cognition},
Spatial orientation strongly relies on visual and whole-body information available while moving through space. As virtual environments allow to isolate the contribution of visual information from the contribution of whole-body information, they are an attractive methodological means to investigate the role of visual information for spatial orientation. Using an elementary spatial orientation task (triangle completion) in a simple virtual environment we studied the effect of amount of… CONTINUE READING
