Overcoming Phobias Using Virtual Reality
A team of therapists and computer scientists has demonstrated that virtual reality can be very effective in reducing acrophobic subjects' anxiety and avoidance of heights, and in improving attitudes toward heights. In this project, acrophobia is treated with three different scenarios: a glass elevator, a canyon with bridges, and balconies overlooking a city.
