Executive functions are the key ingredient for behavior regulation. Among them, Inhibitory control is one of main exponents of executive functions, and in the last decades it has received a good amount of attention thanks to the development of chronometric tasks associated with paradigms that allowed exploring human behaviour when the inhibitory component is needed. Among the different paradigms typically used, the Simon and flanker tasks are probably the most popular ones. These have been subjected to modifications in order to assess inhibitory control from different perspectives (e.g., in different samples, or in combination with different research techniques). However, its use has been relegated to classical presentation modalities within laboratory settings. The accessibility of virtual reality (VR) technology has opened new research avenues to explore research on inhibition control assessment with increased ecological validity, still ensuring laboratory-like controlled conditions and high precision in the measurements. Relying on this technology, here we present two state-of-the-art adaptations of the classical Simon and flanker tasks reinterpreted and adapted to real-world circumstances. Our results show that VR is a reliable tool to assess inhibitory control that could provide valid experimental data with a high level of real-world transferability and generalizability.
