Abstract

Primary sensory cortices are generally thought to be devoted to one sensory modality-vision, hearing, or touch, for example. Surprising interactions between these sensory modes have recently been reported. One example demonstrates that people with cochlear implants show increased activity in visual cortex when listening to speech; this may be related to enhanced lipreading ability.
