Other Research

In addition to our core areas of specialization, VRMC conducts research in a variety of areas related to using advanced technologies for training, therapy, and emerging applications. The virtual environments that we construct for our clinical and training programs uniformly elicit significant physiological arousal to replicate real-world experiences. We have a strong development team at VRMC, utilizing a three-pronged approach to product and protocol development. New concepts for products are initially discussed with clinicians and technical members of the team, which include software developers, programmers, hardware integrators, and computer graphic artists. And since our team includes international collaborators, we are able to create culturally-sensitive VR systems designed for use with a more diverse group of users.
