Scientists use virtual reality to improve the attitude of young troublemakers

NEW APP: Can be used with cardboard glasses

The Institute of the Polytechnic University of Valencia is attempting to use virtual reality as a means to help improve behavioural problems in children and youth and is seen as a highly effective and minimally invasive tool.

The project, which started last November with the cooperation of the Centre for Rehabilitation of Children, is said to help improve self control, and gain a better reaction to the stimulus offered, allowing for better focus of attention and relaxation at the same time.

Researchers have created a free application called Neuroeducation and Care to allow the entire educational community to benefit from the tool, which can be used with cardboard glasses, similar to those used for 3D films, but incorporating a lens approved by Google, while the app is downloadable from a smart phone.
