Congenitally blind people use the visual part of their brains (the occipital cortex) for language. It goes to show you how brain real estate is super valuable. One prediction that we can make from this finding is that “a blind individual would be more resilient to brain damage to classic language regions,” says Marina Bedny, a researcher at MIT.
SO, if you like to ride motorcycles and then crash and the injuries to your brain are primarily in the language regions, well let’s hope that you were blind to begin with so that you can still talk and put together sentences.
