Neuroscience of Visual Impairment

Track 13: Neuroscience of Visual Impairment:

Our brain only needs a split second to determine what we’re seeing. The area in our brain that can categorize these visual observations so quickly is the so-called ventral-temporal cortex, the visual brain. It is found that blind individuals also use the map in the visual brain. Their visual brain responds in a different way to each category. This means that blind people, too, use this part of the brain to differentiate between categories, even though they’ve never had any visual input.
