DIVE-n: ICT Brings VR to Neuroimaging

The Mixed Reality Laboratory (MxR) at USC’s Institute of Creativity Technology is leveraging virtual reality to better view, explore, and comprehend complex data. We are happy to be working with Dr. Tyler Ard, a neuroscientist and new addition to the lab, in developing a functional brain data viewer termed Data Immersive Virtual Explorer: Neurological (DIVEn). With DIVEn both time-series and functional connectivity data can be interactively explored in 3D, allowing the considerable advantage of viewing and comprehending complex results quickly while still preserving data in its natural, ‘raw’ form.
