When you play a computer game you often control a character that is different from how you look. In some way, when you play a game you BECOME that character – your avatar. But what does it mean that you become your avatar? This station will show you how we try to answer this question. You will see what tasks our participants do and what equipment we use to record electrical signals from our participants’ brains.

When you play a computer game you often control a character that is different from how you normally look. In some way, when you play a game you BECOME that character – your avatar. But what does it mean that you become your avatar? This station we will show you how we try to answer this question. You will see what tasks our participants do and what equipment we use to record electrical signals from our participants’ brains. It will present an experiment that we did with EEG – a system that allows to measure electrical activity of the brain, by putting electrodes on the surface of one’s head.
Participants will see how an EEG signal looks and will have the chance to try doing the task in which they will see their face, a face of their avatar or other faces.
