Virtual reality provides an opportunity to expand the frontiers of behavioural research. In this talk, Dr Stephanie Thomas from Curtin University's School of Economics, Finance and Property will discuss the use of the methodology of experimental economics, specifically as a tool for understanding health related decisions. A rationale for incorporating virtual reality into the experimental economics laboratory will be developed and examples of current work discussed.
