comment Introductory material on psychophysics with a focus on visual stimuli
Can you elaborate a little bit on why these authors and papers are pertinent for future readers of the question?

Ah, okay, yes the "visual stimuli" portion was what I was after. Thanks! Psychophysics is a huge field, so that will help someone get you the answer you actually want.

Could you narrow down your question a bit? As it stands now, it's too broad to get an exact answer.

I clarified the "halo effect" aspect in case people hadn't heard of it (I hadn't!)

comment Comprehensive list of cognitive techniques in CBT
Self-help questions are generally off topic here, but I think this is general enough. I think the term you are looking for is "cognitive distortions" though.

I'm sure they are online somewhere (I don't know where, though, sorry). However, for $15 you can get the theory and practice right from the horse's mouth: amazon.com/Cognitive-Therapy-Emotional-Disorders-Psychology/dp/…

comment Possibility of using the effects of sleep to induce a virtual environment?
That is not to discourage you. I like this question, I upvoted it, so keep at it. I'm just trying to say that there's a "science fact" here that in many ways is much more interesting if you look at it more deeply.

@Nick If you look up some of Eberhard Fetz's papers on the motor cortex from the 1970s (many are freely available now), you'll see that it has taken us 40 years of painstaking research on the nature of the motor cortex to get this far. If you look into the the "BrainGate" technology that drives the robot arm research, you'll see it's only been tested on two patients prior to this, both unfortunately passed away, and the original company went bankrupt in the process. While I enjoy the fact that the work has finally been adapted for human beings, your full virtual reality experience
