Virtual View: design of experiment two

After conducting and analysing the first experiment some points of improvement emerged. The differences in heart-rate between the sets weren’t significant so we want to create more extremes in heart-rate. One group will get a heart-rate enhancing trigger and there will be a control group that won’t. There was evidence of interaction with age for […]

Virtual View: results experiment one

In this post I want to give an overview of the results of the first and I will spare you the heavy statistic speak. So don’t expect a scientific article. The data is there and I may write a proper article one day but it isn’t appropriate for this blog. Together with Hein from the […]

We needed at least 30 participants equally divided between men and women. Avans Hogeschool  has thousands of students and staff so we didn’t expect that to […]

Virtual View: building an experiment

This is a state of the art stimulus creation software package for building (psychological) experiments with all kinds of stimuli. Ilia has […]

It would be nice if there was an actual […]

Virtual View: Literature research

To get a better idea of which type of landscapes and sound have the biggest effect on (experienced) relaxation explorative research is necessary. At the end of January I started the research trajectory for the project. This is a collaboration with students from the minor “Active ageing” from the Avans Hogeschool. The three students are: […]
