Perceptual Illusion and Development of a Sense-Centered Human Interface

  • Yasuharu KoikeEmail author


Tele-existence is the replication of physically plausible information through the provision of real sensation of presence. Here, we sought to elucidate the mechanisms of perceptual illusion within the context of brain function. Improving our understanding of perceptual illusion will contribute to the realization of new and more efficient human interfaces.
