Call: “Life and Death Moral Dilemmas in VR” Study

Call for Participants

“Life and Death Moral Dilemmas in VR” Study

The Virginia Philosophy Reality Lab (VPRL) at Old Dominion University is asking for participants in a research study on moral decision-making in virtual reality settings. Prospective participants must be 18+ years of age and have access to an Oculus headset. Participants will fill out a brief informed consent form and questionnaire before downloading the virtual reality experience that tests responses to virtual life-and-death scenarios.

To participate in the study, please visit our website and follow the instructions:

Please consider sharing this link with non-philosopher students and colleagues, as we would like to get as diverse of a sample as possible. Data collected from responses to these scenarios will inform new behavioral and social models of moral decision making. These contributions can also help improve decision making modeling for diverse applications from self-driving cars to robotics and AI networks.

For any questions or feedback, reach out to us at We’d love to hear from you!
