In collaboration with Jeff Gold at LA Children Hospital, he is investigating the use of VR for acute pain distraction during at painful medical procedures and for discomfort reduction during chemotherapy. His latest project has focused on the translation of the graphic assets from the Xbox game, Full Spectrum Warrior, into an exposure therapy application for combat-related PTSD with Iraq War veterans. In spite of the diversity of these areas of research, the common thread that drives all of these applications involves the study of how VR simulation technology can be usefully applied to serve the needs of the user/client/patient in a manner that goes beyond what is available with traditional 20th Century tools and methods.  Become a fan.     Follow us.     Read our blog.    Watch our videos. © 2012 USC Institute for Creative Technologies.
