From Today's news...

Another example is Anton's syndrome, which causes people to hold a belief that defies all logic: they have become blind, but are adamant they can see. It usually occurs after a stroke or head injury that robs patients of their sight.

No one knows why this delusion occurs. It may be that the permanently visual region of the brain still sends out confused electrical messages. In response, the brain makes up images — convincing the patient they can see.
Is this a confirmation that we have a capability to see things without our eyes?
