JULY 31, 2017 | Excessive cell phone use may cause anxiety, experts warn
BIOPAC user Nancy A. Cheever, Ph.D. from California State University, Dominguez Hills was featured on Good Morning America. Her study investigated whether spending too much time on your phone may be causing people to feel stress and anxiety. Dr. Cheever hooked up TJ Holmes and two teenage participants to an MP System with GSR and heart rate amplifiers to measure ECG and Electrodermal Activity. The subjects were then interviewed about the physiological aspects of Smartphone addiction.
This is not the only study that Nancy Cheever’s lab has gotten attention for. She was previously featured on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper for her study on how smart phone apps keep us hooked to our phones.
Projection-based virtual reality is a powerful immersive medium that makes it easy to experience VR applications without the need for heavy headgear or cables. With unobtrusive wireless sensing technology, researchers can easily measure their physiological and behavioral responses.
You Will Learn To: • Understand key principles of combing virtual reality + physiological data recording • Mark events from the simulation into the physiological record • Access physiological data in the VR environment for biofeedback and control • Set up a projection-based virtual reality simulation room • Analyze the resulting data
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allows research teams to conduct studies in virtual reality. Here are a few notable studies using both virtual reality systems and BIOPAC equipment researching to see how virtual reality could impact emotions, health, and medicine. Feelings on 2D vs. 3D Previous studies have suggested that virtual reality (VR) can […]
