ImmVRse has partnered with Imperial medical school to reveal the effects that VR exerts on human sensory response and physical reactions.

ImmVRse, a revolutionary virtual reality (VR) content-sharing platform based on blockchain technology, has collaborated with the brightest minds from Imperial medical school to conduct a research called “The Impact of Virtual Reality on Neural Activity”. The study will show how VR can affect human sensory response and physical reactions.

The main goal of the research is to identify the influence, which virtual reality exerts on humans, and to reveal more information about how human brain works. ImmVRse platform plans to develop these projects by collaborating with major universities as partners.

Training programs on VR has already enjoyed successful deployment. One of the examples of such successful projects is “Snow World”, a game designed for burn victims – especially minors. The game allows them to be engaged in virtual snowball combat with a snowman.

Another example is VR technology called SUSIE (Senior – User Soothing Immersing experience) created by Stanford University students. It is designed specifically for seniors unable to leave their homes. SUSIE opens an opportunity for them to experience the outdoor world they are no longer physically capable of accessing. So, the positive effect of VR on people’s lives can’t be overrated.

Not so long ago, the Imperial school of medicine has included a new course Clinical Research and Innovation (CRI), the basic idea of which is to engage students in conducting research analysis in addition to studying theories. A group of talented students is currently working with ImmVRse in the context of “The Impact of Virtual Reality on Neural Activity” research.

The course is supervised by CRI Theme Lead, Dr. Saleh. The VR research team is led by the CEO of ImmVRse, Farabi Shayor. Six students – Ela, Shivam, Mai, Ruhi, Rachel and Francesca, are engaged in conducting the research.

The group of students will use medically approved 12 channel Electroencephalography (EEG) headsets to supervise electrical impulses and neural activity. While the participants are expected to wear VR headsets and interact with both passive and active VR, their EEG graphs will be logged and analysed.

ImmVRse is a brand new blockchain-based platform developed and backed by a visionary team of experts spanning relevant technologies, IT Management, VR, computer security and blockchain development.

The company’s CEO, Farabi Shayor, possess over 10 years of experience in the development of blockchain-based market deliverables, financial analysis, and brand identities, with a huge background in both finance (BSc) and marketing (MSc). He is also leading a small team from Imperial College London conducting R&D on VR-Neuroscience.

Limon Rahman, ImmVRse’s COO and Co-Founder, is a highly driven entrepreneur with practical hands-on experience. In addition to having successfully founded and managed a great number of business ventures, he also possess 15 years of experience in the field of financial control and management and has overseen budgets worth over $300m.

The company’s head of marketing, Adrian Chan, is the former MadBuzzHK’s co-founder and a seasoned marketer and journalist with proficiency in online content development. Moreover, he achieved an MSc in Marketing Communications and Advertising.
