"Nearly 100 years after a British neurologist first mapped
the blind spots caused by missile wounds to the brains of soldiers,
Perelman School of Medicine researchers at the University of
Pennsylvania have perfected his map using modern-day technology," according to Science Daily. "Their
results create a map of vision in the brain based upon an individual's
brain structure, even for people who cannot see. Their result can, among
other things, guide efforts to restore vision using a neural prosthesis
that stimulates the surface of the brain. The study appears in the latest issue of Current Biology, a Cell Press journal." Read more.
