Project Description

Virtual and augmentative reality have the ability to shape how we run both translational research and implement clinical interventions. The current project has the opportunity to investigate both ends of the spectrum. We have recently designed a virtual reality choice room, which will allow for the assessment of human choice responding under more naturalistic conditions. We have also recently started looking at the clinical utility of virtual and augmented reality in increasing quality of life and therapeutic outcomes for people with dementia and those with Intellectual disability. Current projects in this space include working on the impact of a virtual reality art tool to increase motor movement among people with dementia, the impact of an augmented reality MRI machine on a child’s ability to successfully complete a MRI scan, and the impact on wandering when a person with dementia is given the opportunity to use virtual reality to wander.

The person interested in this project would ideally already be a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (or have equivalent qualification). They should have a reasonable understanding of the technology and the ability to program would be a benefit.

Funding Notes

The projects are intended for self-funded PhD students and students who are eligible for the general scholarships offered by the University of Auckland; see
