This chapter discusses how reprogramming the brain, by inducing visual inputs to innervate the auditory pathway, can reveal the relative influence of intrinsic and extrinsic factors in determining the function and organization of sensory cortex and thalamic nuclei. It describes its effect on retinal innervation, its physiological and behavioral consequences, and its potential influence on cortical circuitry.

Keywords:   cortical reorganization, visual inputs, auditory pathway, sensory cortex, retinal innervation, thalamus
