Someone who was born blind experiences sounds, smells, and sensations while dreaming, but since the brain possesses no visual information, the dreams are not visual, says Charles Crawford, executive director of the American Council of the Blind. A blind person's brain might combine sensory information into a representational image of an object, but that image would bear little resemblance to the object itself.
