Research feature

Dr. Thomas Stoffregen, professor and director of the Affordance Perception-Action Laboratory in the School of Kinesiology, published his recent findings “... that users of head-mounted [virtual reality] display systems are at significant risk of motion sickness and that in relation to motion sickness these systems may be sexist in their effects.” The study and results can be read in the journal Experimental Brain Research.

Student spotlight

Each year, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) funds hundreds of students who produce new knowledge and creative work in partnership with U of M faculty. UROP serves students and faculty whose learning and teaching goals include outside-the-classroom enrichment. School of Kinesiology faculty have hosted a number of UROP students over the years, many of whom have gone on to attend our graduate programs and work with their faculty mentors on innovative and exciting research.

Meet Saurav Dubey, UROP student who is working this semester in the Human Sensorimotor Control Laboratory.
