Virtual reality for better diagnosis of mental disorders

In this article Gema Climent, CIO of Nesplora Technology and Behaviour, explains how virtual reality can be used to evaluate brain disorders.

A more surprising thing is that patients are more motivated to be evaluated because VT tools are easy to use and more “fun”.
