Brain 'does not need eyes to see', say Italian scientists

(ANSA) - Pisa, October 3 - New research by Italian scientists suggests that our brains do not need eyes to be able to envision things. People who are blind from birth have a mental understanding of objects and space that is similar to that of people born with vision, according to a study by the University of Pisa's department of philology, literature, and linguistics. "Paradoxically, we could say that our brain does not need eyes to see and know the world," said researcher Giovanna Marotta, whose findings will be discussed at a conference later this week in Pisa. The findings may help clarify "the relationship between language and experience," said Marotta.
