If you’re feeling lost about what happens inside a VR headset, you can count on your brain’sā€™ 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.
