Abstract

In my talk I will present some recent findings from studies investigating the developmental trajectory of multisensory integration and crossmodal learning in healthy individuals. Next I will discuss the experience dependence of  the development of visual and multisensory functions by presenting both behavioral, EEG and brainimaging data from individuals who were born blind due to congenital bilateral cataracts and who only recovered vision later in life.
