The brain may undergo functional reorganizations. Selective loss of sensory input or training within a restricted part of a modality cause "shifts" within for instance somatotopic or tonotopic maps. Cross-modal plasticity occurs when input within a modality is absent - e.g., in the congenitally blind. Reorganizations are also found in functional recovery after brain injury. Focusing on such reorganizations, it may be studied whether a cognitive or conscious process can exclusively be mediated… CONTINUE READING
