Event description

Description

Date: Thursday 8 August

Join Dr Juno Kim from UNSW’s School of Optometry and Vision Science to discover how virtual reality is being used to understand balance, posture, and movement.

Experience state of the art VR technology to discover how our sense of balance and motion is regulated through both our vision and our vestibular system (the sensory organs of the inner ear that detect gravitational forces applied to our head).





Location

Dr Kim's lab is located above the UNSW Optometry Clinic in the Rupert Myers Building, North Wing. Take the lift to level 2, turn left and go straight down the corridor to the Psychophysics laboratory.
