PhD thesis by Ulla Konnerup: Renegotiation of self after a brain injury using immersive virtual environments. A contribution to technology-mediated speech therapy

This thesis addresses the use of immersive virtual environments in the rehabilitation of persons suffering from aphasia. More specifically, it concerns how acting through a virtual representation—that is, a so-called “avatar”—might contribute to the renegotiation of identity and affect the re-establishing of lost communicative competencies following brain injury.
