Brain plasticity and cortical folding: studying congenital and late blindness

It has already been shown that morphological differences in brain structure are discernible in blind subjects compared to sighted subjects. We are interested here in the potential plasticity induced by blindness on the morphology of cortical folds, the cortical sulci. This morphology is indeed a marker of brain development and organization.
The student will have an MRI database of congenital or late blind subjects and control subjects. He/She will also have at his disposal all the software necessary for the proper processing of these data to be able to compare the three populations used.
