The overall purpose of The Blind Brain Workshop is to highlight how the view of the brain has changed from the study of the sensory deprived model. Within this framework the workshop aims to provide the optimal setting for a full immersion into the most recent research advancements on the sensory deprived brain, with the aim to tackle from multiple perspectives, conceptual and methodological challenges. We aim to gather scientists from all-over the world to understand the role of perceptual experiences in brain morphological and functional development and plasticity. We would like to provide the context for knowledge exchange and confrontation within the fields of research of sensory deprivation and brain plasticity.
