How humans can echolocate like bats | Popular Science
인간도 후천적으로 음파탐지 기술을 습득할 수 있다, Popular Science
- 와 이번 주 가장 충격적인 기사다. 맹인은 훈련을 통해 소리를 애용해 사물의 위치를 파악할 수 있다고
- 입 속의 혀를 튕겨 소리를 내고, 그 소리가 다시 반사되어 돌아오는 시간차를 파악할 수 있다고 한다.
- 과학자들의 조사에 따르면, 온전한 시력을 가진 사람의 시각 이미지를 처리하는 뇌의 부분이 맹인들에게는 음파탐지의 역할을 한다고.

BLIND SCIENTIST TOOLS
IMPLEMENTATION OF PROTOCOLS TO ENABLE DOCTORAL TRAINING IN PHYSICAL AND COMPUTATIONAL CHEMISTRY OF A BLIND GRADUATE STUDENT
Most of the information displayed is drawn from this journal article, coauthored by myself, my postdoctoral coworker, the head of the Disabilities Office, one of my professors, and my graduate advisor. If you are blind or teaching a blind student, I hope you can use this encyclopedia of tools and techniques that got me through school to the place I am today. These informational cards will link you to informative notes with recommendations that span that scope of my blind academic experience, from working with access assistants, or “readers”, to choosing software and hardware.

People Born Blind Are Mysteriously Protected From Schizophrenia - VICE


As time goes on, larger data sets have emerged: In 2018, a study led by a researcher named Vera Morgan at the University of Western Australia looked at nearly half a million children born between 1980 and 2001 and strengthened this negative association. Pollak, a psychiatrist and researcher at King's College London, remembered checking in the mental health facility where he works after learning about it; he too was unable to find a single patient with congenital blindness who had s...

People Born Blind Are Mysteriously Protected From Schizophrenia - VICE
시각 장애로 태어난 사람은 정신분열증을 겪지 않는다, Vice

선천적으로 앞을 보지 못하는 맹인으로 태어난 사람들 중에는 단 한 명도 정신분열증을 진단받은 사람이 없다고.
이 발견이 놀라운 이유는 시각 장애로 태어나는 요인은 감염이나 뇌 손상, 유전적 요인 등 원인이 다양한 데, 이러한 원인과 상관없이 일관되게 정신분열증을 피해가는 결과로 이어졌기 때문.
더군다나 오히려 선천적 맹인이 아니라 후천적으로 시각을 잃었을 경우 정신 관련한 질환을 경험하기 쉬움.
아마도 시각과 정신 장애 사이에 어떠한 연관성이 있다는 증거일 수 있다고 함

Sensory substitution - Wikipedia
I had long thought about a device plastered on one's chest that could function as a vision system. Turns out I'm not the only one. But I never considered the possibility that one could substitute tactile sensation for auditory sensation. I did know about some blind persons using sonar clicks to navigate and even to identify objects. And I had considered creating a device that produced really sharply defined clicks (beyond the range of human hearing) and then changing them back into audible (perhaps via an earpiece) clicks for the benefit of the user. Again, it seems I was far from the first to think of this.

But this is a good article about substituting one sense for another with the aid of technology.
