Why the World Looks Stable While We Move

The experimental setup relies on computer-controlled air cushions to stabilise the test subject's head within the fMRI scanner. This allows scanning the moving head. LEDs are used as reference points to measure head movements and adapt the VR feed accordingly. Image: CIN, Universität Tübingen
