Moreover, the latency of the N1m component of the auditory-evoked magnetic response was significantly decreased in the blind. The development of use-dependent cortical reorganization may be a consequence of the absence of visual input in combination with enhanced auditory activity generated by the long-term concentration by blind individuals on nonvisual cues to interact appropriately with the environment. It is consistent with and well suited to mediate the demonstrated increased ability of the blind to accurately localize acoustic sources in peripheral auditory fields and to decode speech.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Rockstroh, Brigitte</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Pantev, Christo</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Taub, Edward</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Taub, Edward</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Journal of Neuroscience, 22 (2002), pp. 9941-9944</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-25T09:14:19Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2002</dcterms:issued> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/10123/1/Expansion_of_the_Tonotopic_Area_in_the_Auditory_Cortex_of_the_Blind.pdf"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:creator>Müller, Matthias M.</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Elbert, Thomas</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.0/legalcode"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/10123"/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:creator>Elbert, Thomas</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-25T09:14:19Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Sterr, Annette</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
