Virtual reality treatment for paranoia

4th April 2008

A study by researchers at the University of London has shown that virtual reality technology could be used as a treatment and tool for diagnosing paranoia.

Dr Daniel Freeman and his team studied 200 participants in a test. The subjects wore a virtual reality headset which displayed a four minute train ride on the London Underground and were asked to complete a test afterwards. "Virtual reality may dovetail exceptionally well with the emerging CBT [Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy] interventions for paranoia," commented Dr Freeman.
