More > used to display the environment has disappeared leaving the environment itself. We present an attempt to unite various presence approaches by reducing each to a common basis (behavior selection and control) and re-conceptualizing presence in these terms by defining cognitive presence – the mental state where the VE rather than the real environment is acting as the basis for behavior selection. The thesis presents the construction of a three-layer connectionist model to explain and predict cognitive presence. This model takes input from two major sources: the perceptual modalities of the user, and the mental state of the user. These two basic sources of input competitively spread activation to a central layer which competitively determines which behavior script will be applied to regulate behavior.< Less
