Empower - The Campaign for Northeastern University


8-13 year old kids needed for virtual reality balance study!

Participating children receive a $20 Amazon gift card and are entered in a draw to win an iPad Mini!

The Rehabilitation Games and Virtual Reality Lab at Northeastern University is recruiting 8-13 year old children to take part in a research study exploring how different virtual environments affect learning of a new balance task.

The study involves coming into the lab for two 1.5-hour sessions. Your child will learn to perform a balance task in a flat-screen display virtual environment. We will evaluate your child’s performance on the task using a force plate that he/she will be standing on and use electroencephalography (EEG) recordings as a non-invasive measure of how children’s brains are functioning in terms of electrical activity while they perform the task.

The study is important to help us to make recommendations about how to use virtual environments for use in rehabilitation! 

 We have scheduling availability weekdays, weeknights and weekends! Please email regamevrlab@neu.edu or leave a message at 617-373-5198 for more information!
