      Dr. Daniel-Robert Chebat is a post-doctoral fellow at the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC), working in the Department of Medical Neurobiology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.  His research focuses on neural correlates of real and virtual navigation in people who are blind, using auditory and tactile sensory substitution devices.  Dr. Chebat works in Dr. Amir Amedi’s Laboratory of Multisensory Research, where the “virtual cane” device, dubbed “EyeCane,” was developed.  The hand-held virtual cane conveys information to the user through a series of vibrations allowing for the reconstruction of an accurate image of the surroundings, giving blind individuals the ability to safely navigate their environment.

      A frequent guest-lecturer in Israel and Canada, Dr. Chebat’s research has been published in a variety of journals.  He has been interviewed by Israeli and international television and radio news outlets and is the recipient of numerous honors and awards.  Dr. Chebat is a native of Canada and holds an M.A. degree in neuroanatomy and a Ph.D. in experimental neuropsychology from the Université de Montréal.
