The Radboud Immersive Virtual Environment Research (RIVER) Labs are two Behavioral Science Institute research labs dedicated to experiments in Virtual Reality (VR). However, in 2013 it was decided to make RIVER Lab 1 (B.00.12) available for other purposes as well, making RIVER Lab 2 (B.00.10) the prime facility for any VR research. The RIVER Labs are managed by Erik van den Berge of the TSG.
