Children’s brains remap and retain visual perception after surgery for severe epilepsy

Researchers from York University’s Faculty of Health (Toronto, Canada) and Carnegie Mellon University (PA, USA) have recently found the brains of children with severe epilepsy can be compensated by rewiring regions of the visual cortex after surgery. This study provides strong evidence suggesting that the brain has some degree of plasticity.

The research was funded by the National Eye Institute and has been published in the Journal of Neuroscience.
