Abstract
Stereoscopic 3D (S-3D) is becoming an increasingly important display technology. Parallel to this, concern about the potential negative effects of exposure to S-3D movies has been growing. Some manufacturers place disclaimers on their N=61) watched a full movie in either 2D or S-3D. Our results do not show evidence for cognitive aftereffects of S-3D movies. A second experiment (N=32) that focused on possible aftereffects on visual attention also failed to find reliable effects. We therefore conclude that cognitive functioning is not altered by watching an S-3D movie, at least not to an extent that is measurable through well-established cognitive tasks.
