Visual Path Integration fMRI Paradigm

 

​An example trial of a visual path integration fMRI paradigm that we are developing is shown here. While in the scanner, subjects will watch several videos similar to this one. They will be asked to keep track of the direction of their starting location relative to their position on the path shown in the video, as if they are walking on this path. At the end of the video, four arrows appear and the arrow that points to the starting location of the path should be selected.
