    EXTENT: Executive Functions Testing in VR with Embodied Cognition

    VR and Psychotherapy Virtual Reality

    Joint program between Hanyang University, University of Nantes, Nantes University Hospital, and Hanyang University Hospital to design, built, and test embodied cognition-based franco-korean VR environments for testing executive functions. 7 Korean students spent 6 months in Nantes, and 7 VR environments were built to assess several executive disfunctions. The project continued with a postdoctoral contract to further develop and test 3 environments.

    HOMERIC: Hybridization of methOds for Modeling ExpeRIenCe in interactive systems

    Affordances Experience analysis and modelling VR and Psychotherapy Virtual Reality

    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.

    Revistim-X: Virtual Reality and Brain Stimulation: an experiential approach

    Experience analysis and modelling VR and Psychotherapy Virtual Reality

    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. The project continues with the development of the EVEREST VR environment.
