The researchers attributed the adult brain patterns to the development of visual perception. Interestingly, the majority of the patterns did not depend on the visual input.

 

"This actually makes sense," Weliky said. "The biggest part of perception is taking cues from the outside world and passing them through our recollection."

      what constantly amazes me is that these researchers act surprised by these findings. Most of what I read online in about studies has been common knowledge to me.

      I don't mean that in an arrogant way either. Just something I have noticed.

        visual input can confuse or help. Its that simple. we tap into things in our dreams because that is when we are our most vulnerable. we only perceive what we can understand. so our mind coordinates things in a way we can understand and sometimes we don't even get that. Or remember the message in a conceivable way. I'm a firm believer that it takes trial and error (and maybe some handed down knowledge from our elders who have been there before us) to make anything accurate of our dreams and inner "seeing".

          Many of those research studies you see are funded by federal grants.

          Think of something to research and apply for a federal grant.

          You get paid to look at things and think.>LOL<

            Yes NodNot only that, most special imformative programs are paid for by special interest groups (especially on TV) to sway opinion.  It's like the cow saying eat more chicken.  You have to consider the source.

            I call it "breakroom proproganda" and we don't even want to talk about sensationalism. 

            Not saying that the studies from the groups in this thread aren't true.  It gives credence to the old adage "seeing is believing." 

            Its also been proven that the speech part of the brain will go undeveloped if a child never hears a spoken language and it can not be learned later because that part of the brain that houses speech did not develop.
