Project Details


Creating and testing a Virtual Reality Therapy Application to reduce alcohol addiction.

Develop and test a Virtual Reality application to be used in therapy, within Novadic Kentron, that helps people deal with alcohol addiction. By recreating real contexts in VR that either stimulate craving or elicit positive feelings, the VR application should increase, for example, self-confidence to deal with these situations and reduce relapse risks. In addition, together with students from BUas and other universities, we study the effects of different forms of realism and resemblance within virtual reality worlds. We are testing, among other things, differences between CGI-created and 360-recorded worlds that differ in level of personalisation.
