For many people, virtual and augmented reality technology is the only way they will get to experience different parts of the world or a variety of other activities.

But what sort of effect will these experiences leave on our perception of the reality around us?

Dr. Julia Shaw joins Kevin Harvell to discuss a variety of topics such as this and how other to better understand how our minds work in regards to memory retention and how it can sometimes lead people to believe something is real when in fact it is not.

We also discuss her book, The Memory Illusion: Remembering, Forgetting and the Science of False Memory.
