we showed random all has volunteered to be the subject of an extraordinary

0:09

experiment manual and a little more support or

0:15

moments mission was going to lose your site

0:20

basic basically house abit suspects that's a great relief

0:25

dot was the real believe and anyway right

0:32

that you're a psychologist over all of us quality on a traditional won't keep

0:36

buying something intelligent snippet of photographic film one vote

0:42

relational

0:51

it's now nineteen a m monday morning

0:54

starbucks

0:56

michelle totally blind until three p m bright-eyed

1:00

as things turn out my mother and i were able to leave cuba together in nineteen

1:03

sixty two

1:04

boeing and the debate coupled with the story and media would transmit mind bird

1:09

bird operation peter pan program hearings is living as a proof reader for

1:13

braille publications sixteen information forays into his brain

1:17

principally through the tip of his right index finger

1:20

an astonishing rate

1:22

for years bring scientists have been fascinated by skill and have wondered if

1:26

it involves a change in the way the brings organize

1:31

this little device prisons braille letters to a fingertip for just a few

1:35

milliseconds

1:43

with deals baseline skill established up now comes the dramatic partner

1:47

experiment phase

1:48

and difficult government extermination correo

1:51

this caller will deliver a powerful magnetic draw to guilds brain c

1:56

temporarily disabling the region immediately anything targeting

1:59

route targeting

2:01

the back of your brain

2:03

and in fact

2:05

dubach part of your brain and with all the visual cortex

2:09

the visual cortex singles information from the eyes

2:13

at least and those of us would cite feel oppressed

2:17

which makes this experiment seem rather odd

2:21

wise after the jewel cortex when what's being tested is a skill involving touch

2:25

twitches processed in another part of the brain entirely

2:31

in fact this is a recreation of an experiment first done by al gore on his

2:35

colleague several years ago kate gilles experience today perfectly replicates

2:40

that experiment

2:41

they felt very good by faith

2:43

dots were coming up

2:44

as well as before

2:46

skills accuracy declined to

2:50

the extraordinary implication is that deals visual cortex is involved in

2:54

reading braille

2:55

as if his brain has somehow rewire itself to recruit for touch brain cells

3:00

most of his use perceive

3:04

and this is the reason for michelle's abrupt encounter with blinds the

3:07

question is

3:09

can her brain also rewire itself to help read braille

3:12

in her case after just a few days as compared with deals of my time with

3:16

outside

3:19

later on that first day of michelle's blindness chief-of-staff ever hit exam

3:23

in an m_r_i_ machine that will take pictures of her brain well different

3:27

senses are stimulated

3:30

to understand results we need a brief lesson in brainerd

3:33

can you show me the parts of the brain that i use one um looking at stuff

3:38

that mean of another pair

3:40

if you have to fix it

3:42

so basically crystallite would be coming in through here but it actually tell us

3:46

all the way to do a very back of your brain

3:49

and it is this

3:51

back-off the brandy occipital cortex did

3:54

is there a visual cortex like were to be about politics

3:58

so it that's where i see where the way

4:01

right so if i mentioned from your hand

4:04

your right hand will come to the left

4:07

side of your brain

4:08

dispersive with me here to there

4:10

foresee a part of the central softness

4:13

information from the left and will come

4:15

today out the site of the right side of the brain

4:20

in this day wondrous demand shield rain

4:22

the results were no surprise when the index finger her left hand was

4:26

stimulated

4:27

the touch sensing region on the right side of the brain lit up just as it

4:31

would and you were me

4:33

but now michelle settles down for her one hundred hours of lines

4:40

favorite movie doesn't need a picture and

4:50

their own walks around the hospital coroner's that

4:57

antibodies to exercise your sense of touch

4:59

happy valentine's day

5:04

practice reading brion

5:06

hours and hours of practice reading bread for until finally

5:11

it's frightening

5:13

in these last few hours of blinds michelle returns the m_r_i_ scan

5:18

this time of brain looks very different

5:21

instead a brick touch sensing region lighting up

5:23

melhor visual cortex is active

5:26

this is it's finding itself with nothing better to do

5:29

the visual cortex has stepped in to help with the test gives more skilled at them

5:33

is the touch region making sense of symbols

5:36

this

5:38

this possibility he strengthened when michelle is tested as do was to see

5:41

disrupting her visual cortex impairs your ability to read braille

5:47

her braille test is a little easier than deals

5:50

to identify whether pairs of letters are the same or different

5:55

them now michelle's visual cortex gets ten minutes into the magnetic coils

6:10

after kroger

6:11

story i think you're right index finger here

6:14

ride

6:21

true enough just like the overhead he received rob's mortgage loan

6:30

this occurred

6:32

averell has reason to be excited

6:34

michelle's experiences dramatic confirmation of this hypothesis that the

6:38

brain can reorganize itself in just a few dates and let alone a lifetime

6:43

i don't think that the brain is right

6:45

market economy

6:46

that is the amount for certain things

6:49

reactivate whatever it meets it to cover that the man

6:52

there is no demand for it

6:54

that we use it for something else is literally like guinea good shopkeeper

6:57

would bill you adjust whatever you offer
