MS Dissertation title: Cue integration and competition during navigation

Area of MS research: My thesis used a head-mounted display and examined how environmental and internal cues to navigation are used when naviagting to previously visited locations. It was found that cues are combined in a Bayesian optimal manner when there is a small conflict between cue-indicated correct locations but that internal cues are preferred over environmental cues when they are in large conflict.
