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.
