Dr. Norman Swan interviews an expert from Johns Hopkins University about the issue. *Using Virtual Reality to Change our Perception of Our Bodies: The same realistic technologies employed for modern video games can be applied to a health care setting, and virtual reality can be used to alter our perception of the way we see ourselves.
