Using virtual reality in aged care facilities to help patients with degenerative brain diseases. 


UQCCR Senior Research Fellow Dr Nadeeka Dissenyaka is at the forefront of research into how virtual reality can be used in aged care facilities and hospitals to help patients with degenerative brain diseases.
