A recent research theme in collaboration with doctors at the hospital, that allows to work on hybrid methods for diagnosis and therapy, with hybrid experience modelling at its core.
EXTENT: Executive Functions Testing with Embodied Cognition
Design, built, and test an embodied cognition-based franco-korean immersive environment for testing executive functions, that will be evaluated in both countries
Partners: LS2N, CHU Nantes, Sphere, Hanyang University (Arts & Tech, Hospital)

HOMERIC: Hybridization of methOds for Modeling ExpeRIenCe in interactive systems
Our goal is to propose concepts, methods, and models for the study of user experience in virtual reality. We explore an hybrid approach that associates qualitative and quantitative methods, particularly first and third person methods. Our applicative aim is to build an affordance-based VR environment for elicitating several Rdoc dimensions associated to depression.

VR for Executive Functions testing: Development of VR and IoT-based Systems for Evaluation of Embodied Cognition
Joint program between Hanyang University, University of Nantes, Nantes University Hospital, and Hanyang University Hospital on the use of VR environments for the testing of executive functions in VR. 7 Korean students spent 6 months in Nantes, and 7 VR environments were built to assess several executive disfunctions. The project continues with a postdoctoral contract.

Revistim-X: Virtual Reality and Brain Stimulation: an experiential approach
This was the first feasability and acceptability study of the association of cerebral stimulation and virtual reality for treatment in psychotherapy. We designed and built an environment related to acrophobia, and analyzed patients' experiences using mixed methods.

(2018) New VR Experiences for the Personalization of Care in Psychiatry: the Example of ReViSTIM Project in Care TVX Workshop at ACM TVX 2018, June 2018, Seoul, South Korea. doi Show abstract This paper presents a new VR platform in hospital environment for the study of mental diseases. The Revistim platform consists in several hardware devices and software tools for the immersion of subjects, the collection of various subjective, physiological and behavioral data as well as the use of new psychotherapeutic systems. The platform is used both for research in neuro-psychiatry (diagnosis, rehabilitation and treatment) and user experience modeling. Considering care, the main objective is to propose personalized care in psychiatry through the assessment of the patient state, the priorisation of targeted interventions, and an efficient evaluation of the VR therapy on the different dimensions of the disease.

Revistim-xX: Virtual Reality and Brain Stimulation: an experiential approach
This second study on the association of cerebral stimulation and virtual reality for treatment in psychotherapy deals with rumination, a dimension of depression. In this study we collect data with questionnaires, EEG, eye-tracking, and micro-phenomenology.
