Virtual reality in psychological research

Submission status
Submission deadline

Virtual reality offers psychological researchers the opportunity to study human cognition and behaviour in a highly controllable environment. Three-dimensional visual scenes can be created that provide an immersive and much more naturalistic experience than more traditional psychological methods including vignettes or video clips, and likely evoke more genuine responses. As such, the use of virtual reality has gained popularity in various areas of psychological research - from social to cognitive and even clinical research.

This Collection welcomes research from all areas of psychology studying human cognition or behaviour using virtual reality.
