Virtual therapy ‘helps with depression’, researchers say
Patients wear a headset that projects a life-sized image, firstly of an adult and then of a child.
The new research tested the technology for the first time on patients with a mental health problem.
The project is part of a continuing study at University College London.
The university, which is working in collaboration with ICREA-University of Barcelona, has suspected for several years that virtual therapy could help with mental health conditions.
