Reification simulation of the kidney’s filtration process. A collaboration by the UNM Center for High Performance Computing, the UNM School of Medicine, and the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine. This VR simulation had two purposes:
1) assist medical students learn one of the most difficult physiological processes to understand,
2) test the effectiveness of VR reified simulations as a method for teaching complex systems.
