Research Lecture Series Dr. Alex Hwang presents: Visually induced motion sickness (VIMS) in stereoscopic 3D display

Please join Alex Hwang, PhD, Schepens Eye Research Institute, for a presentation entitled “Visually induced motion sickness (VIMS) in stereoscopic 3D display.” The lecture will take place on December 6, 2016 as part of the Research Lecture Series. All are welcome to attend. COPE approval pending.

Please join us for a wine and cheese reception in Conference Room 1 following the lecture.


Watching 3D contents using a stereoscopic display may cause various discomforting symptoms including motion sickness. This talk will describe likely sources of this visually induced motion sickness. The objectives of this lecture will be to provide a theoretical understanding of the possible causes that may alleviate motion sickness in 3D viewing, and experimental results that suggest possible ways to measure the visually induced motion sickness.
