2012 PLoS ONE  
Moreover, when the virtual-robotic tools were held in a crossed position, the visual distractors interfered strongly with tactile stimuli that was connected with the hand via the tool, reflecting a remapping  ...  The effects of real-world tool use on body or space representations are relatively well established in cognitive neuroscience.  ...  Contributed reagents/materials/ analysis tools: AS GR.

Associations Between Binocular Depth Perception and Performance Gains in Laparoscopic Skill Acquisition

Adamantini Hatzipanayioti, Sebastian Bodenstedt, Felix von Bechtolsheim, Isabel Funke, Florian Oehme, Marius Distler, Jürgen Weitz, Stefanie Speidel, Shu-Chen Li
2021 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
Individual differences in perceptual learning of binocular depth discrimination when performing a random dot stereogram (RDS) task were measured as variations in the slope changes of the logistic disparity  ...  It is also of relevance in laparoscopic surgical procedures that require the extrapolation of three-dimensional visual information from two-dimensional planar images.  ...  of laparoscopic instruments, and reduction of haptic feedback.  ...

Perception and Orientation in Minimally Invasive Surgery

Mikael Sodergren
2012 Archives of Surgery  
During the last two decades, we have seen a revolution in the way that we perform abdominal surgery with increased reliance on minimally invasive techniques.  ...  This paradigm shift has come at a rapid pace, with laparoscopic surgery now representing the gold standard for many surgical procedures and further minimisation of invasiveness being seen with the recent  ...  , the fulcrum effect of the instruments and change in haptic feedback.  ...

The Role of Depth Perception in XR from a Neuroscience Perspective: A Primer and Survey

Vetle Hushagen, Gustav C. Tresselt, Noeska N. Smit, Karsten Specht
Augmented and virtual reality (XR) are potentially powerful tools for enhancing the efficiency of interactive visualization of complex data in biology and medicine.  ...  cortical areas with a special focus on depth vision.  ...  The immersive aspect of XR is especially suited for surgical training, with the advantage of providing realistic visual and haptic feedback in an environment the user perceives as an operating room.  ...

The design process of an autostereoscopic viewing interface for computer-assisted microsurgery

A T h esis S u b m itted to the U n iv e rsity o f L ondon for the D egree o f  ...  In one of the early projects a VR tool was used for molecular docking [55]. One of the important innovations of the new tool was the creation o f haptic feedback mechanisms.  ...  This ensures that the positioning of the probe is driven by visual feedback and not by a motor reflex due to touching, known as haptic feedback.  ...

Effects of Transcranial Direct-Current Stimulation on Motor Learning in the Developing Brain [article]

Patrick Ciechanski, University Of Calgary, University Of Calgary, Adam Kirton
Finally, we examined the effects of tDCS on complex motor skill acquisition, including laparoscopic surgical and neurosurgical skills in medical trainees.  ...  Transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS) is a form of non-invasive brain stimulation applied in both healthy and clinical populations.  ...  Conversely, laparoscopic procedures substantially less haptic feedback as the forces are dispersed throughout the instrument; therefore, movements in laparoscopy are primarily based on visual feedback  ...
