Special Issue Information
Due to its standardization, controllability and reproducibility features, Virtual Reality has been largely used in Sport Sciences this last decade. However, some technical limits can also alter the perception and action of immersed players. Some questions then arise. How can Virtual Reality help understanding the perception and interactions between players? How can training in immersive environments help individuals to acquire motor and perceptual skills that can be applied to real situations? What may be the nature and quality of feedbacks returned? This Special Issue aims to gather theoretical and practical knowledge on the use of Virtual Reality for Physical Activity and is concerned by the original research, meta-analysis, reviews, and brief reports which are related to this topic.
