A new touch-sensing glove can feel pressure and other tactile stimuli, researchers report. The glove has applications for those with motor function disorders and could be adapted from virtual reality gaming experiences.
Friends who "swapped bodies" using virtual reality to generate the perceptual illusion found their beliefs about their personalities altered to become more similar to the beliefs about their friends' personalities. Findings suggest that when our mental self-concept doesn't match our physical self, our memories become impaired.

A new study reveals preference of odors can flip, depending on the situation.
People with mild cognitive impairment who had positive biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease in their cerebrospinal fluid performed worse on virtual reality navigation tasks. Virtual reality which incorporates navigational tasks could prove a helpful tool in the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease for those at risk.
Researchers create a multisensory virtual reality environment in order to better understand how the brain processes spatial navigation and the anticipation of important events.
