Can humans use echolocation?



  1. 0 Votes

    The ability for humans to use echolocation is rare, but does happen. One example is a 14 year old in Sacramento that is blind. He makes clicking noises that bound off of objects, which he uses to determine where they are. Scientists previously believed that the visual cortex in the blind is useless, this is not the case anymore. When a blind person uses another sense such as touch or hearing the visual cortex becomes active.
