Abstract

The adoption of Virtual Reality in rehabilitation of cognitive and psychological disorders is limited by high costs of software development, lack of technical expertise among end-users, and the difficulty of adapting the contents of the virtual environments (VEs). In this paper, we describe NeuroVR, (http://www.neurovr.org), a cost-free virtual reality platform based on open-source software components that allows non-expert users to easily customize a VE by using a set of pre-designed virtual scenes, and to run them in an immersive or non-immersive modality. In this paper, we provide a description of the key functional features of the platform.
