Virtual reality might be the next big thing for mental health
from Scientific American
Experts used to worry that virtual reality (VR) would damage our brains. These days, however, VR seems more likely to help our gray matter.

Many of these solutions are still in laboratory testing, but some are already making their way into hospitals and therapists’ offices.
