Submission + - Blind Man Navigates Obstacle Maze Unaided (nytimes.com)

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.
