<h1>A note:</h1> <p>If you are here, you might be interested in using Virtual Silcton for your research. Please be aware that at this time we are investigating a bug that has affected data collection in the onsite pointing task. If you are reading this message, please hold off on using Virtual Silcton for your research (at least the onsite pointing task) until further notice. </p> <p>Apologies. The Virtual Silcton research team. </p> <h1>Introduction:</h1> <p>This page provides the offline files and documentation for Virtual Silcton - a virtual environment paradigm for the study of human navigation behavior. </p> <p>If you are looking for the online version of Silcton and you already have an account, go here, <a href="http://virtualsilcton.com" rel="nofollow">virtualsilcton.com</a>. </p> <p>If you are a researcher and you would like to set up an online account to collect data for your lab, email Steven Weisberg at smweis at gmail dot com. </p> <h1>Virtual Silcton</h1> <p>Virtual Silcton is a virtual environment, built by Victor Schinazi, Drew Dara-Abrams, and Steven Weisberg, modeled after Temple University's Ambler campus. It has been used to study individual differences in spatial navigation (e.g., Weisberg & Newcombe, 2015; Weisberg, Schinazi, Newcombe, Shipley, & Epstein, 2014), the development of spatial navigation (Nazareth, Weisberg, Margulies, & Newcombe, 2017), and cognitive correlates of spatial navigation (Blacker, Weisberg, Newcombe, & Courtney, 2017), among other questions. </p> <p>Virtual Silcton is modeled on the route integration paradigm wherein participants first learn a total of 8 buildings along two routes. They then learn two connecting routes. At the end, they must point from each building to every other, and construct a map of the environment from memory. </p> <h1>Contents of this OSF Page</h1> <p>The purpose of this OSF page is to provide an updated repository for all things Virtual Silcton. I will make an effort to update the site with all Virtual Silcton publications and materials. I would also welcome collaborators who want to use Virtual Silcton in their own research, or create analytic tools to analyze some of the rich data we have on our participants. </p> <p>Here, you will find the documentation, analysis tools I've developed over the years, and offline versions of the environments themselves. If anything is confusing, missing, or broken, please email Steven Weisberg at smweis at gmail dot com. </p>
