About Mel Slater

My research is in the area of virtual reality, both on the technical side and its applications in the area of cognitive science and psychology. In the last few years I have concentrated on the issue of virtual embodiment, where your life-sized virtual body in virtual reality substitutes your own body, leading to the illusion of body ownership. In particular I have looked at the consequences for physiological, behavioural, attitudinal and cognitive changes that can occur as a result of virtual body ownership.
