8-13 year olds needed for a virtual reality research study!

The Rehabilitation Games and Virtual Reality Laboratory is recruiting 8-13 year old children to take part in a research study testing how complexity of the virtual environment affects 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 one of 2 virtual environments: an enriched, gaming environment, or a more basic comparison 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 the nature of the virtual environment for use in rehabilitation!


Participating children receive a 20$ Amazon gift card.


If you are interested in hearing more information and completing a short online survey about your child’s eligibility for the study, please contact us by replying to this email (regamevrlab@neu.edu) or leaving a message at 617-373-6107.
