Speaker session: Assessment of spatial memory using virtual reality and serious gaming techniques

About this event

Diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's are related to a better understanding of spatial memory in the human being, this to do with the tracking of objects and routes around us in our brain. However, spatial memory is not easy to analyze, mostly neuroscience researchers have to replicate their experiments on animals. On the other hand, it has been shown that humans make use of their spatial memory in video games and in virtual reality environments, so using these technologies in the area of ​​neuroscience and specifically for the area of ​​spatial memory analysis it will be of vital importance.
