Behrang is a scientist with the Home and Community Team and joined Toronto Rehab in October 2012. He received a PhD in experimental psychology from the Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz, Germany. His research focuses on human factors in virtual environments, with particular emphasis on preventing adverse effects of simulators, such as nausea and disorientation that are related to visually induced motion sickness. In addition, Behrang’s research also aims to increase driving safety for younger and older drivers, such as developing methods to prevent drowsy driving, and to explore the neurocognitive and behavioral aspects of self-motion perception (vection) in virtual reality applications.
