Childhood Development and Immersion

There is little research on children and immersive virtual reality.  Our research seeks to examine how young children behaviorally and socially respond to immersive virtual reality, and the characters within it. We have conducted an extended review of the literature that currently exists in this realm and are preparing a white paper on the “state of the art” of the overlap between developmental psychology and VR.  Moreover, we have run a series of studies that will contribute to a better understanding of children’s experiences with this new technology.
