The utility of VR is growing in the fields of entertainment, education, sports, military, and more. Virtual reality videos have an impact on human memory. All technology comes with its advantages and disadvantages. VR headsets can cause cybersickness and shut down a significant number of neurons in the hippocampus that are responsible for retaining, recalling, and remapping. An empirical study is carried out to investigate the effects of virtual reality videos on declarative memory (associative memory) of human beings.
