Check out my first vlog on my current research. I am a graduate student working in Prof. Amir Amedi’s lab at the Institute for Medical Research Israel-Canada (IMRIC) at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My research involves sensory substitution devices (SSDs) for the blind. Using the vOICe SSD, created by Dr. Peter Meijer, and novel devices continuously developed in the lab, we focus on teaching blind individuals to 'see' through sounds and investigate how the blind brain can learn to process 'vision' in adulthood.
