Δημοσιεύτηκε στις 2 Σεπ 2015
A licensed clinical psychologist in the U.S. and Europe, a visiting professor at the Catholic University in Milan, and an entrepreneur, Dr. Brenda Wiederhold completed the first randomized, controlled clinical trial to provide virtual reality medical therapy for war veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Her most recent achievement is working with coalition troops to provide stress inoculation training prior to deployment. She is further exploring the use of VR in treating patients of all ages suffering from ailments such as claustrophobia to stress disorders. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. Dr. Wiederhold is CEO of the Virtual Reality Medical Institute in Belgium and the Executive Vice President of the Virtual Reality Medical Center in California.
