Virtual Reality Lab
With its infrastructure of fixed VR stations and portable VR headsets, physiological testing (including wearables) and programming expertise, the multidisciplinary team at the VR Research Lab explores the mechanisms underlying the onset and maintenance of mental health disorders. Using digital technologies, we aim to contribute to the development of new therapies and diagnostics.
We work to develop portable and user-friendly digital devices and design virtual environments and on-line psychological interventions adapted to specific target populations (e.g., young people, carers, patients with specific mental health disorders). The interventions are carefully tested; trainings for mental health professionals guarantee best possible transfer from scientific research to clinical practice.
