Why are Virtual Environments of interest for functional neuroimaging?

Functional neuroimaging (Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)) probes in vivo patterns of activity in the human brain. Anything short of an interactive real-time display will not fully be able to represent the richness of these spatio-temporal phenomena.

Although primitive and slow, we hope that the demonstrations found on these pages will convince you about the viability of virtual environments in mediating the dialogue between MDs, engineers, and physicists.
