Real world interactions require rich information from sights, sounds, and movements. For example, to converse with a partner, our brain must effectively integrate information from our visual and auditory systems. This study is interested in better understanding how we see, hear, and walk in everyday environments. You will be asked to complete a series of baseline assessments about your sensory, balance, and cognitive abilities. This valuable information may then be used to determine your eligibility for other studies with us. Examples of future studies may include, examining how the brain uses hearing and vision to better understand events, examining how accurately we perceive self-motion using virtual reality, and using our state-of-the-art driving simulator to assess acceptability of self-driving vehicles.

By participating in this session, you will help with the recruitment process for studies that will examine how we combine sensory information for everyday activities, such as interacting with the environment, walking, and driving.
