EXTRACT

In a virtual world adults in a child-like body start to perceive the world more like a child, a study has shown.

EXTRACT

"Somehow the brain thinks 'this is my body' which makes the whole experience consistent. You see the world bigger, have more childlike attributes and prefer a child's environment rather than an adult one."

The researchers propose that their work has numerous applications, particularly for therapy or remembering childhood memories.

"You're putting yourself in the shoes of someone else, so you can get some aspect of how they feel to be in this position.

"To some extent you could revert people to a child-like experience, so they may be able to remember things from their childhood better or to empathise more with their own children."

EXTRACT

"Virtual reality could help us take the perspective of victims, of young children and could help rehabilitate prisoners.
