Re: Is it brain plasticity, or what?

It seems that camera-based auditory displays for blind people
are getting fashionable these days, at least judging from today's
media coverage about work done at the SmartSight Limited startup
associated with the University of Manchester Institute of Science
and Technology (UMIST), UK:

 - Nature Science update of today, 14 november:

   Brain : A picture worth a thousand notes

 - Beyond 2000 Brief Science of today, 14 november:

   A picture sings a thousand songs....?

They also had a poster presentation at last week's Annual Meeting
of the Society for Neuroscience in New Orleans. List members are
of course welcome to benchmark and compare the SmartSight audio
samples available at


with those available on my website.

Best wishes,
