  1. 11. Virtual reality exposure therapy for spider phobia

    Author : Alexander Miloff; Per Carlbring; Lena (Lotta) Reuterskiöld; Nexhmedin Morina; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Specific phobia; spider phobia; spider; fear; anxiety; virtual reality; exposure therapy; automated; alliance; psychometric; factor analysis; virtual therapist; RCT; randomized; non-inferiority; clinical trial; dissemination; 12-month follow-up; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : Exposure therapy for specific phobia involving systematic and repeated presentation of an aversive stimuli or situation is a highly effective treatment for reducing fear and anxiety. Dissemination of this evidence-based treatment has proved challenging, however, and for over 20 years an alternative method of delivery using virtual reality technology has been explored with positive results.

  2. 12. Understanding virtual speakers

    Author : Jens Nirme; The Educational Technology Group; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Verbal Comprehension; Multimodality; Audiovisual integration; Gesture; Educational Technology;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses how verbal comprehension is affected by seeing the speaker and in particular when the speaker is an animated virtual speaker. Two people visually co-present – one talking and the other listening, trying to comprehend what is said – is a central and critical scenario whether one is interested in human cognition, communication or learning.

  3. 13. A Seeing Place – Connecting Physical and Virtual Spaces

    Author : Josef Wideström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : stage; VR; theatre; Virtual Space; virtual reality; place; physical space;

    Abstract : In the experience and design of spaces today, we meet both reality and virtuality. But how is the relation between real and virtual construed? How can we as researchers and designers contribute to resolving the physical-virtual divide regarding spaces? This thesis explores the relations between the physical and the virtual and investigates ways of connecting physical and virtual space, both in theory and practice. READ MORE
