The objective of the present study was to test if and to what extent phasic and tonic event-related potentials of the human EEG may reflect phenomena of cortical plasticity. In particular, it was tested if the occipital cortex of blind subjects participates in the processing of non-visual stimuli. To this end, 12 blind and 12 blindfolded sighted subjects were tested in an auditory and a somatosensory discrimination task with 2 levels of discrimination difficulty. Slow and fast event-related… CONTINUE READING
