Lecture: Dr. Eric Hodgson, Smale Interactive Visualization Center, Miami University

In conjunction with our summer special exhibitions, Dr. Eric Hodgson, director of the Smale Interactive Visualization Center at Miami University, will speak about "Playing with Perceptions of Space." 

His primary research relates to human spatial ability, including spatial memory, perception, reference frames, landmark use, and navigation. Because this work often includes the construction and use of virtual environments for people to navigate within, he also conducts applied research related to immersive virtual reality and motion tracking. Most recently, this work has involved developing Redirected Walking techniques to expand the navigavible area availaible for simulations.
