But breaking is different from activation.


There was something... Something I half remember.

Constant stimulation to a region can have the same effect as ablation of the region. I suppose because you are knocking out the signalling (rate firing) either way.

If we suppose that hallunications are activations of cortical regions that are associated with stimuli from external sources (but may become de-coupled in dreams or hallucinations or imagingings or rememberings or conscious experiencings)...

Then I don't suppose there is any reason to believe that deaf people or blind people would be less prone to visual or tactile hallucinations respectively.

I just don't see a deaf person reporting auditory hallunications or a blind person reporting visual hallucinations since these words wouldn't have experiences associated with them for them.

It would be like a color blind person reporting experiences of a color they couldn't see.

Hallucinate echo-location much?
