Post subject:  Placebo effect and virtual reality

Hi,

A program called Insight recently aired on Australian TV and this weeks' subject was "The placebo effect".

At 43 min 30 sec into the program, mention is made of a woman with whiplash injury who used an Oculus Rift to rehabilitate her neck problem.

Interestingly, the placebo effect can be used to reduce symptoms of nausea.

It is known that virtual reality experiences can cause nausea.

The $64 question is whether virtual reality training can suppress the nausea caused by using virtual reality headsets.

Thanks.
