PsychLabVR is a virtual research center created through a team led by Noah Robinson, a clinical psychology doctoral student at Vanderbilt University. It is freely available on the Steam VR app store. With IRB consent we collect behavioral data and survey response questions in an Internet-connected immersive virtual environment. Our first alpha experiment involves simulated social scenes to measure social anxiety. This data will be used to create an empirical foundation for a free, automated intervention to treat social anxiety disorder. We also hope to open the platform to other researchers who can collected data with Unity-based environments in PsychLabVR. If you'd like to learn more, please contact Noah Robinson.
PsychLabVR will be updated with future experiments and free treatments.
