Research Laboratory for Immersive Virtual Environments

Welcome to the website of Waterloo’s Collaborative Virtual Reality Group.  Our members are interested in a wide variety of issues related to the use of immersive virtual reality technologies in psychological research. 

With these technologies, we can design studies with unprecedented levels of control over content of three-dimensional virtual spaces. This level of control allows us to explore many interesting questions about how we perceive, think, remember, and interact with others. In addition, we have active applied interests in how virtual reality technology can be used in architectural design, urban planning, communication, and psychotherapy.

Our lab is currently in an exciting growth phase and we welcome input, inquiries and collaborative proposals from both university researchers and members of the community.
