Brain Tricking | Virtual Reality

Home > News > Brain Tricking | Virtual Reality

Moncrieff, in conjunction with partner Lenovo, is providing access to Virtual Reality (VR) technology which is making a resurgence.

VR is potent because it’s so visceral and immediate that it can trick your brain into mistaking it for reality. Professor of communication at Stanford University and the founder and director of its Virtual Human Interaction Lab research, Jeremy Bailenson, understands how VR experiences can change how people think about themselves and others, perhaps in places where other media might fail.

Moncrieff’s venture into VR is looking at applications in areas of education and training. VR can be used in the classroom through to on-the-job training to immersing you in the experience. There is a profound need to improve training and ensure safety.
