Improved Imaging Techniques in Brains of The Blind
The visual faculty may be absent in people who are born blind, but the brain is found to create new connections that compensate for the loss by improving the other senses, like that of hearing, touching and smelling, along with improvements in cognitive ability. These enhancements have been documented by a research team from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear institute, published in PLOS One, in which the structural, anatomical and the functional changes that occur in the brain when the baby is born blind are detailed for the first time.
