When young people learn about their five senses, they learn the basics: which parts of their body allow them to see, smell, taste, hear and touch. But sight for one Australian seven-year-old is much more complicated. A recent case study shows that he is the first known person to be able to see despite damage to the “seeing” part of his brain.
Not only can the boy, known as B.I., see, he can see better than many people with normal brains. He’s simply a bit near-sighted.
