Abstract: This thesis describes the development of a Virtual Reality (VR) based training systemfor micromanipulation in collaboration with the National University Hospitalin Singapore. Microsurgery is currently trained on mocks, animals or cadavers,and by observing and assisting experienced colleagues. If the training is inefficientit is hard to identify problems; for safety, cost and ethical reasons (less trainingwith animals), one cannot try all possible strategies. It is expected that VR systemwill enable more effective and systematic training, and to test the future surgeons.While conventional approaches judge a virtual environment by its resemblanceto the real environment, we address only efficiency in learning. We train simpledexterity primitives corresponding to selected features of the complex task, anddevelop fast algorithms to systematically investigate suitable multisensory learningcues.
