HEI-Lab is a R&D unit that conduct research on the study and intervention on human mind and behaviour through digital systems. These systems (smart environments comprising virtual, augmented and mixed reality apps) typically mimic physical and mental environments optimizing the human-context relationship and providing a deeper insight on this interrelation. Such approach move from the classical stimulus-organism-response model to the innovative stimulus-technology-organism-technology-response model, from which higher scientific and intervention standards can be achieved. This continuum is used to test models of human behavior (focusing on psychological processes underlying various forms of ab/normal behavior and well-being across the lifespan) and create new 3Ts (technological therapeutic/intervention tools) to be applied to the contexts of clinical and health assessment and intervention.
More than 20 year designing and clinically validating digital apps (VR) to intervene on human mind and behaviour.
