Supplementary Material

Supplementary Table: Overview of the brain activation foci in the ventral and dorsal visual pathways reported in studies that used a sensory substitution device (SSD) in blindfolded sighted subjects.

Supplementary File 1: Auditory version of a pair of stimuli used in the experimental condition (localization or orientation) with the sensory substitution device (SSD). The sound corresponds to a horizontal bar followed by a vertical bar presented both in the middle-lower part of the artificial retina (see Figure 3, left part of the figure).

Supplementary File 2: Auditory version of of a pair of stimuli used in the control condition with the sensory substitution device (SSD). The sound corresponds to three isolated pixels presented in the SSD artificial retina (see Figure 3, right part of the figure).
