ABSTRACT

A preliminary study on the use of an adaptive display for treating emotional disorders is presented. The purpose of this study is twofold: to obtain a virtual environment that adapts to the emotional states of the user at each moment and to analyze the possibility of using it for the treatment of emotional disorders. Until now, different types of adaptive displays have been developed and studied, some of which try to react to affect states of the user (Reynolds et al., 2004). The novelty of our system lies in the use of the adaptive display for the treatment of emotional disorders.
