Psychology Student Opinion of Virtual Reality as a Tool to Educate About Schizophrenia

Jennifer Tichon, Jennifer Loh, Robert King

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

VR techniques are being increasingly used in training and education generally (MacPherson & Keppell, 1998; Romano & Brna, 2001) and specifically within healthcare education (Riva & Gamberini, 2000). A project at the University of Queensland constructed a number of three-dimensional demonstration models of the phenomena seen in schizophrenia. Reproduced symptoms of schizophrenia included delusion, hallucinations and though disorder. Auditory hallucinations were also included, consisting of voices ranging from muffled whispers to a cacophony of voices.
