+ - Blind Man Navigates Obstacle Maze Unaided->

Submitted by iammani
iammani (1392285) writes "Nytimes runs a story about a blind man (blind because of damaged visual cortex) successfully navigating an obstacle maze, unaided. Scientists have shown for the first time, that it is possible for people who are blinded because of damage to the visual (striate) cortex can navigate by "blindsight", through which they can detect things in their vicinity without being aware of seeing them."
