Social Facilitation and Inhibition in Augmented Reality: Performing Motor and Cognitive Tasks in the Presence of a Virtual Agent

In this preliminary study, we set out to explore the social facilitation and inhibition effects in augmented reality (AR). To do so, participants performed cognitive and motor tasks in two levels of difficulty either alone or in the presence of a real human or a virtual agent. Tendencies towards social facilitation and inhibition could be observed.
