Abstract: VR techniques are being increasingly used in training and education generally (MacPherson & Keppell, 1998; Romano & Brna, 2001) and specifically within healthcare education (Riva & Gamberini, 2000). A project at the University of Queensland constructed a number of three-dimensional demonstration models of the phenomena seen in schizophrenia. Reproduced symptoms of schizophrenia included delusions, hallucinations and thought disorder. Auditory hallucinations were also included, consisting of voices ranging from muffled whispers to a cacophony of voices.
