UCLA researchers have developed a behavioral training program that treats anhedonia using virtual reality (VR) and memory training. By implementing a behavior training program in VR, individuals can experience controlled immersive experiences that are designed to promote motivation and interest. These positive experiences combined with memory recounting (or memory specificity training), can improve anhedonia.

Abstract

UCLA researchers in the Department of Psychology have developed a behavioral training program for the improvement of anhedonia.
