Despite strong evidence of effectiveness, exposure therapy is an underutilized treatment for anxiety disorders at a time when effective treatment for anxiety is greatly needed. The significant worldwide prevalence and negative impact of anxiety are documented and highlight the importance of increasing therapist and patient use of effective treatment. Obstacles to the use of exposure therapy are explored and steps to lessen these obstacles are proposed. In particular, virtual reality (VR) technol...

Digital therapeutics are a much-needed addition to the available treatments necessary to curb today’s chronic pain epidemic. Having evolved in the past several years and now being clinically validated and able to readily connect to clinical dashboards, these treatments represent an alternative option to help patients and clinicians alike address chronic pain and its most common comorbidities. This chapter provides a broad overview of digital therapeutics, a discussion of several types of digital...

Virtual reality (VR) has been proposed as a methodological tool to study the basic science of psychology and other fields. One key advantage of VR is that sharing of virtual content can lead to more robust replication and representative sampling. A database of standardized content will help fulfil this vision. There are two objectives to this study. First, we seek to establish and allow public access to a database of immersive VR video clips that can act as a potential resource for studies on em...

Abstract Precision medicine models for personalizing achieving sustained behavior change are largely outside of current clinical practice. Yet, changing self-regulatory behaviors is fundamental to the self-management of complex lifestyle-related chronic conditions such as depression and obesity - two top contributors to the global burden of disease and disability. To optimize treatments and address these burdens, behavior change and self-regulation must be better understood in relation to their ...

The deepest and most significant impact or VR technology will be in the area of clinical medicine and healthcare. VR technology will dramatically impact medical assessments, clinical care, preventive health and wellness, and will help facilitate the shift of the locus of medical care from the clinic to the home.

Sexual function, and in particular erectile capacity, declines with age in men. The present study attempted to identify possible sensory/neural and autonomic factors related to this decline. Data on self-reported sexual activity and functioning, as well as erectile response to visual erotic stimulation, were gathered from 39 healthy, sexually functional men ranging in age from 21 to 82. In addition, four parameters of putative significance to sexual functioning were measured: penile electrical a...

To investigate the possible role of sensory function in conditions affecting sexual function, sensory thresholds were compared between young healthy men (n = 14,\(\bar x\) age =29.8) aging men(n = 15,\(\bar x\) age = 67.3), and men suffering from diabetic impotence (n = 15,\(\bar x\) age = 45.0). Using the psychophysical method of forced choice, vibrotactile and electrical stimulation thresholds were deterlmined in two separate sessions at two body sites: the fingertip and the ventral surface of...

The purpose of this study was to determine whether plasma oxytocin (OT) levels change during human sexual responses and, if so, to demonstrate the temporal pattern of change. Plasma OT levels were measured by RIA before, during, and after private self-stimulation to orgasm in normal men (n = 9) and women (n = 13). Blood samples were collected continuously through indwelling venous catheters. The subjects pressed a signal to indicate the start and finish of orgasm/ejaculation. Objective assessmen...
