Full-text available
Penile plethysmography (PPG) is the gold standard for the assessment of sexual interests, especially among sex offenders of children. Nonetheless, this method faces some ethical limitations inherent to the nature of its stimuli and could benefit from the improvement of its ecological validity. The use of computer-generated characters (CGC) in virtu...
Article
Full-text available
Penile plethysmography (PPG) is considered the most rigorous method for sexual interest assessment. Nevertheless, it is subject to faking attempts by participants, which compromises the internal validity of the instrument. To date, various attempts have been made to limit voluntary control of sexual response during PPG assessments, without satisfac...

Abstract The eye movements and penile responses of 20 male participants were recorded while they were immersed with virtual sexual stimuli. These participants were divided into two groups according to their capacity to focus their attention in immersion (high and low focus).

This chapter proposes a prospective view on using a real-time functional magnetic imaging (rt-fMRI) brain-computer interface (BCI) application as a new treatment for pedophilia. Neurofeedback mediated by interactive virtual stimuli is presented as the key process in this new BCI application. Results on the diagnostic discriminant power of virtual c...

Article
Full-text available
Sexual arousal and gaze behavior dynamics are used to characterize deviant sexual interests in male subjects.

Project
Numerous studies show the need to design interventions for psychoactive substances (PS) users not only from a biomedical angle, but also to address the different types of vulnerabilities these people face. The general aim of this transnational Canadian, French, and Belgian study is to better understand how gender and life stages influence addiction, health risks, and recovery trajectories in order to guide the development of integrated, gender-responsive services that address the complex social and health care needs of vulnerable populations.
