Bruno Patrão, Samuel Pedro, Paulo Menezes

Abstract


In this paper we present a Virtual Reality based laboratory experience that can be used to demonstrate the effect that emotions may play in our bodies. For attaining this purpose, a Virtual Reality-based system is presented where three different virtual environments aim at inducing specific sensations and emotions on the students participating in a classroom experiment. The objective is that the students be able to analyze their own physiological data and understand the correlation between data patterns and experienced situation.
