One thought on “CFP: Semantics and Philosophy in Europe 6”

  1. > one such study suggests that some subjects experienced tactile stimuli as visual
    > in nature after training with a visual-to-tactile peripheral substitution device

    Although the evidence for extensive use of sensory substitution devices leading to experiences in the substituted modality is certainly not yet conclusive, another example is the paper “Visual experiences in the blind induced by an auditory sensory substitution device”, Consciousness and Cognition, Vol. 19, 2010, pp. 492–500, http://www.seeingwithsound.com/extra/cc2009_preprint.pdf

    Studies of both invasive and non-invasive sensory bypasses may deepen insights in the extent to which brain areas are “metamodal” (task-oriented rather than linked to specific sensory modalities) and plastic.
