How do we create the experience we call reality? How are rapidly evolving interaction technologies changing it? Presence is a field studying the science, technology and social impact of digitally mediated interaction. It consists of research strands studying how to produce “real”-feeling experiences and the impact of associated technologies on social dynamics. Presence is intensely interdisciplinary, requiring collaboration in fields as diverse as Human and social cognition, human-machine interaction and machine cognition.

|María Victoria Sánchez Vives, Doctor of Medicine and Surgery (PhD) ), studies Presence from a Neuroscientific point of view.
Professor of physiology at the Instituto de Neurociencias de Alicante, she leads a group focused on Systems Neuroscience research.
She is particularly interested in the perceptual roots of Presence in virtual environments and the explotation of virtual reality for the understanding of brain function (Mechanisms of spatial processing, Body perception and 3D visualization of neurons).
