Project "Virtual reality game: my first day at school"

The aim of this project is to develop a virtual reality game to enable the assessment of socio-emotional skills as well as approach and avoidance behavior and their psycho-physiological correlates in individuals with limited self-reporting capacity. This is a sub-project of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) professorship project, which has aims to better understand socio-emotional processes in individuals with developmental disorders and intellectual disability (e.g. Autism Spectrum Disorder, Williams Syndrome, a non-specific intellectual disability) (compared to individuals with a typical development).
