A new study has suggested that a unique mechanism in the brain helps in understanding and learning hand gestures even for blind people. The study conducted by Japanese researchers showed that a region of the neural network that recognizes others' hand gestures is formed in the same way even without visual information.

The study showed that human brain mechanism perceived human bodies from inanimate objects and showed a particular response. Assistant Professor Ryo Kitada of the National Institute for Physiological Sciences, National Institutes of Natural Sciences, said that many individuals were active in many parts of the society even with the loss of their sight as a child.
