Differential diagnosis and treatment of neuropsychological disorders require assessments that can differentiate overlapping symptoms. Previous research has most often relied on paper-and-pencil as well as computerized psychometric tests of cognitive functions. Although these approaches provide highly systematic control and delivery of performance challenges, they have also been criticized as limited in the area of ecological validity. A possible answer to the problems of ecological validity in assessment of cognitive functioning in neurological populations is to immerse the participant in a virtual environment. This chapter reviews the potential of various virtual classroom environments that have been developed for neuropsychological assessment.
- Virtual reality
- Virtual classroom
- Virtual human
