Practicing paying attention can boost performance on a new task, and change the way the brain processes information, a new study says.
In my first blog post on the Oculus forums, I write:
“Boiling things down, I realized a few tenets of virtual reality to highlight 1) is that one is cut off from the real world if settings are in accordance (i.e. no mobile phone notifications) and therefore undivided attention is made. 2) Immersion and presence can help us condense fact from the vapor of nuance. The nuance being all of the visual information you will automatically gather from looking around that you would otherwise not necessarily have with i.e. a textbook.”
What would you leverage VR’s innate ability to funnel our attention and focus for?
