Counteracting sadness and depression with virtual embodiment/disembodiment illusions?

In collaboration with the UZH-Project Embodied Psychology we offer an interesting Master’s thesis. We investigate if it is possible to counteract sadness and depression with virtual embodiment/disembodiment illusions. Besides virtual reality we also use methods to measure whole-body emotions and physiological measures. Study participants will be students, but the results will also be relevant for future research into clinical depression.
