Abstract

Everyday life is driven by a wide range of mental processes organized in cognitive, emotional and executive functions. The assessment of these abilities could be improved thanks to the rising of Virtual Reality (VR) technologies, that show a more ecological validity in respect to the artificial laboratory settings. Moreover, mental processes can be investigated via electrophysiological measures, due to the modulation of deep structures controlling the autonomic system, and in turn peripheral organs activity. According to scientific literature, measurements could derive from sensors over periocular area, that is the same area covered by a typical VR headset.
