Virtual Environment Applications in Clinical Neuropsychology
Virtual Reality has undergone a transition in the past few years that has taken from the realm of expensive toy into that of functional technology. This emerging computer-driven simulation technology appears to be well matched to the assessment and rehabilitation needs of persons with cognitive impairments and functional disabilities due to various forms of Central Nervous System (CNS) dysfunction. The capacity of virtual environment technology to create dynamic three-dimensional (3D) stimulus environments, within which all behavioral responding can be recorded and measured, offers clinical assessment and rehabilitation options that are not available using traditional neuropsychological methods. This work has the potential to advance the scientific study of normal cognitive and behavioral processes and to improve our capacity to understand, measure, and treat the impairments typically found in clinical populations with CNS dysfunction. Clinical populations that could benefit from virt...
