VMHC reductions in the visual functional regions were extensive, especially in the striate cortex (BA17 area), in the extrastriate cortex (BA18/19 areas), and in the precentral cortex (BA7 area), which suggested that the interhemispheric synchronization of spontaneous neural activity was decreased in these brain areas, and the functional homology of the primary visual cortex, visual association, and somatosensory association might be impaired in adolescent early blind patients.
