If you’re feeling lost about what happens inside a VR headset, you can count on your brain’s’ internal GPS to guide you through virtual reality experiences. Here, we dive head(set) first into the neuroscience and psychology of VR.

BrainCraft was created by Vanessa Hill (@nessyhill) and is brought to you by PBS Digital Studios. Talking psychology, neuroscience & why we act the way we do.
