And then the last thing I wanted to say, really, is to emphasize that the idea gnreaeiezls. So the same strategy that we used to find the code for the retina we can also use to find the code for other areas, for example, the auditory system and the motor system, so for treating deafness and for motor disorders. So just the same way that we were able to jump over the damaged circuitry in the retina to get to the retina's otuupt clles, we can jump over the damaged circuitry in the cochlea to get the auditory nerve, or jump over dagaemd areas in the cortex, in the mtoor cortex, to bridge the gap produced by a stroke.

So the same strategy that we used to find the code for the retina we can also use to find the code for other areas, for example, the auditory system and the motor system, so for treating deafness and for motor disorders. So just the same way that we were able to jump over the damaged circuitry in the retina to get to the retina's ______ _____, we can jump over the damaged circuitry in the cochlea to get the auditory nerve, or jump over _______ areas in the cortex, in the _____ cortex, to bridge the gap produced by a stroke.

Solution

  1. damaged
  2. motor
  3. output
  4. cells
  5. generalizes

And then the last thing I wanted to say, really, is to emphasize that the idea generalizes. So the same strategy that we used to find the code for the retina we can also use to find the code for other areas, for example, the auditory system and the motor system, so for treating deafness and for motor disorders. So just the same way that we were able to jump over the damaged circuitry in the retina to get to the retina's output cells, we can jump over the damaged circuitry in the cochlea to get the auditory nerve, or jump over damaged areas in the cortex, in the motor cortex, to bridge the gap produced by a stroke.
