“Over recent years, we have come to the suprising realization that sensory cortex is highly plastic in functional organization, even in adult brains.”
This also applies to the paper by Zangaladze et al (1999) which showed that visual cortex is used for tactile discrimnations of some kinds in normal subjects.
