CALME: a proposal

I wanted to put this here in case anyone’s interested. Its a research proposal for a VR related depression treatment module that I formulated with a team at the University of Texas. This is definitely something I will be picking back up upon entering grad school.

I wrote this last summer 2015 and lookie here at this month’s article on huffingtonpost šŸ™‚

I only hope even more teams pick up on this, the possibilities are so exciting. Also imagine what a team of game developers working together with scientists, could do with this, much more engrossing than rudimentary 3D figures and voices. We [developers] have the technical skill and knowledge of how to affect people to really make a project like this beautiful and transformative, and backed by research could really take things to levels never seen before.
