  • Virtual Reality is coming to the ENLoK! Dr. Pollock and Dr. Kalkhoff recently received generous funding to build a two-person VR lab, complete with state-of-the-art headsets and 360-degree treadmills--all to be fully integrated with the ENLoK's existing physiological measurement technology. Remodeling of the laboratory space to accommodate the new equipment is set to begin soon. Check back for details. The lab is planning a grand-opening VR haunted house party for the fall of 2020.
