This chapter investigates experience-based changes in the auditory system using the congenitally deaf white cat model. Through the use of cochlear implants, which permit acoustic experience, the auditory cortex of the congenitally deaf cat cortex is shown to be capable to modifying itself to resemble that of hearing cats.
