Jörg Lewald and Stephan Getzmann Ventral and dorsal visual pathways support auditory motion processing in the blind: evidence from electrical neuroimaging European Journal of Neuroscience 38
Correlates of auditory motion processing are substantially enhanced in blind compared to sighted human subjects about 170 ms after motion onset. Stronger activations in blind than sighted subjects were found primarily in ventral visual areas of the occipital cortex, while specific visual motion areas were involved to a lesser degree. This suggests a recruitment of visual areas for motion processing in the blind that is largely independent of the specific function in sighted persons.
