This PET study aimed at investigating the neural structures involved in pattern recognition in early blind subjects using sensory substitution equipment (SSE). Six early blind and six blindfolded sighted subjects were studied during three auditory processing tasks: a detection task with noise stimuli, a detection task with familiar sounds, and a pattern recognition task using the SSE. The results showed a differential activation pattern with the SSE as a function of the visual experience: in… CONTINUE READING
