What does it mean if, the visual cortex in blind people is highly involved in doing math, suggesting the brain is vastly more adaptable than previously believed?
Math is the only subject that did not come naturally to me. I eventually became decent at equations. Sadly after college I didn't use what I learned. I am sure I would remember, if I needed what I learned. Visualization is something I excel at. Most Math teachers never explained why or used visualization.
This tells me that our brains are placid. Which recent studies have demonstrated.

Human babies and even animals have a basic number sense that many believe evolves from seeing the world and trying to quantify all the sights. But vision has nothing to do with it -- neuroscientists have found that the brain network behind numerical reasoning is identical in blind and sighted people.
