Research was carried out within three weeks of a handful of people showed that virtual reality helps people who struggle with repression .When we speak of virtual reality, such technology and inventions are usually associated with the gaming industry, watching movies, sporting events and the like.
But recent research of two renowned European universities found that virtual reality can have a therapeutic effect and to help people who strugglie with depression.
Although in this study were involved a small number of people who have problems with depression and for that it is difficult to come to specific conclusions, positive results ensure that in the future we can expect a growing number of research about this issue and hopefully, confirmation of positive result.
Research was done in a way so that the patient in a virtual world talks and gives comfort to a lonely sad child . During the conversation , the child stops crying and positively respond to communication , then all of that changes and the patients begins to see from the perspective of the child, or watch an adult comfort them.
This scenario was repeated eight minutes three times in period of twenty days, which after the symptoms have decreased in 9 of 15 patients , of whom four were observed significantly reduced symptoms of depression.
