In our daily life, information is rarely perceived by one sense alone. For example, when people are speaking, we can make out what they are saying by hearing the sound, but also by reading their lips. Depending on how the both modalities interact, this process of audio-visual integration can enhance or disturb the cognitive performance.

We want to improve the validity of research on multimodal cognitive performace evaluation by creating more close-to-real life audio-visual virtual reality scenarios, that are suited for adults and children. Therefore, different paradigms are created and different audio-visual factors of influence are evaluated.
