Sunday, 15 February 2015: 10:00 AM-11:30 AM
Room 210EF (San Jose Convention Center)
Amir Amedi, Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel
The talk will focus on recent advances in the development of sensory substitution devices, which offer great hope in rehabilitative practice, and which take advantage of the remarkable multisensory plasticity that accompanies sensory loss. In addition to showing behavioral and neuroimaging data associated with training on sensory substitution, the talk will also challenge conventional assumptions about the organization of sensory cortical function.
