Some blind people are better at locating sounds than people with normal vision indicating cross-modal plasticity. People who have lost one eye have a unique form of visual deprivation that reduces visual afferent signals by half and can potentially also lead to cross-modal (as well as intra-modal) plasticity. To look for evidence of auditory-visual cross-modal compensation, we measured binaural and monaural sound localization in one-eyed people and compared them with normally sighted controls… CONTINUE READING
