    Our brain imaging studies examine the effects of sensory deprivation associated with blindness or hearing loss on brain organization and plasticity. Prior research has shown activity in the visual cortex of blind people when they are engaged in language and non-visual sensory tasks. Current studies examine memory usage of visual cortex in blindness. Additional studies in people with unilateral hearing loss indicate increased activity in auditory cortex from hearing through the intact ear. Current research includes longitudinal studies with adults prior to and immediately following unilateral hearing loss in order to follow changes in auditory cortex activation from the intact ear.
