Virtual Reality in Neuro-Rehabilitation: What Does The Future Look Like?
Join us as we explore how augmented and virtual reality is being used as a therapeutic tool to improve cognitive function.
No longer within the realms of science fiction, virtual reality technologies are advancing neurological and cognitive rehabilitation. Whether it be used in conjunction with transcranial stimulation to improve cognitive ability in people with Parkinson’s disease, or used on its own to deliver telehealth group singing interventions for people with quadriplegia to improve respiratory function, voice, mood, and social connectedness, augmented and virtual reality programs have opened up a new world of research.
Join us to learn about a few unique projects happening here and from around Victoria.
