VR – Cue Reactivity

VR World+License:Cue Reactivity

In this demo, the participant is exposed to a sequence of rooms along a corridor that contain different stimulation environments. Four neutral environments and four smoking environments are included.

Usage Guidelines

This demo is also intended to serve as a tutorial on how to construct a virtual reality experiment. It can be fully modified and has been designed in a modular format with extensive comments to allow reuse of parts in other experiments. Code is written in the Python programming language and extensive support on programming with Python is provided in the software package and user forums. 3D models from the demo can be reused within the VR platform (only).

Objectives

  1.  To use a controlled stimulus presentation where the participant is exposed to environments with different stimuli.
  2. To record the physiological responses.

For example, in the study of addictions, this paradigm could be used to investigate the relationship between craving, physiological response, and the way the stimulus is presented in the environment.

Overview

The participant is exposed to a sequence of rooms along a corridor that contain different stimulation environments. Four neutral environments and four smoking environments are included, and the environment can be expanded. The number of rooms as well as the objects in the rooms can be modified. The participant does not actively navigate the environment.

Data analysis

Digital markers in the physiological record indicate when the participant is exposed to what condition, which allows for automated data analysis.

Mobita Advances Prestimulus EEG Research

The Mobita 32-Channel EEG recording system was used in research examining if physiological data can be used to predict truly random events that correspond to perceptual stimuli. Baumgart, et al. from the University of California Santa Barbara utilized a quantum random number generator (qRNG) to choose from three randomized conditions: light, sound, and no stimulus. […]
