A Virtual Reality game to explore and understand the brain.

Virtual Reality

Brain Pilot

A brain VR experience for medical students

Explore the inside of a virtual brain from a first-person perspective. Investigate structures of the brain as a whole or in functional or anatomical subcomponents. Experience pathway activation by following signals as they pass from one brain region to others.

After this VR experience, you’ll know the brain because you’ve been there.

Your exploration produces a true 3D representation of brain structures and pathways in your own mind.


Target:

Medical students, faculty or healthcare providers who teach medical students

Value Proposition:

Brain research is yielding novel insights and detailed understanding of brain circuitry and neurochemistry. Medical students need an understanding of neurobiology and the recent advances to develop their understanding of addiction as a brain disease. However, developing a mental map of the brain’s complex network of structures and neural pathways is challenging. Having to construct their understanding from two-dimensional images of three-dimensional models often results in limited and incomplete understanding. This project builds a unique, immersive 3D brain experience in VR that helps medical students develop a robust understanding of complex spatial relations and the role of neurotransmitters.

Platform:

Oculus Rift or Playstation VR
