Description: 2015-2016 BSSR Lecture Series

Within the setting of visual deprivation, the brain undergoes dramatic reorganization in both its structure and function. Furthermore, these neuroplastic changes are intimately related to compensatory sensory and perceptual behaviors observed in individuals who are blind. We will present how modern neuroimaging has helped reveal the relationship between the brain and behavior as it relates to blindness. We will also highlight differences between individuals who are visually impaired due to ocular causes as compared to those who have developmental damage to the visual cortex.
