Cyberpsychology[1] is a branch of psychology that studies the impact of digital technology[4] on human behavior. It encompasses research on diverse aspects such as the effects of virtual reality[2] on behavior, cognitive modeling, and the influence of social media[3] on personality disorders, addiction, and anxiety. Cyberpsychology also explores the benefits and challenges of virtual therapy, particularly its effectiveness observed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Another significant area of focus is the correlation between social media usage and self-esteem, feelings of social isolation, depression, and addictive behaviors. Its effects on sleep quality and overall well-being are also considered. Cyberpsychology not only impacts other fields like cybersecurity but also has cultural relevance and resources dedicated to its study, including professional bodies, journals, TV shows, and books.

2. virtual reality. Virtual reality, often abbreviated as VR, is a technology that simulates a user's physical presence in a digital environment. Originating as a term in the mid-1400s, the concept of VR has evolved significantly, with notable milestones including the development of the first head-mounted display and the Sensorama. Technological advancements over time have allowed VR to expand from medical and military applications to consumer use. Today, VR is widely employed across multiple industries such as healthcare, architecture, education, and entertainment. Despite facing challenges such as the closure of research labs and hardware development struggles, the field has seen significant innovations. Key aspects in VR technology include display resolution, image latency, and field of view, all crucial in creating immersive experiences. Various tools and technologies, like Virtual Reality Modelling Language (VRML), WebVR, and photogrammetry, are used to develop VR experiences. Hardware considerations for VR production often involve high frame rates, smartphone-based displays, and omnidirectional cameras.
Cyberpsychology (Wikipedia)
