This chapter addresses the development of cross-orientation contrast normalization and cross-sensory calibration. It describes how the visual system retains the capability for interactions with other systems. It shows that haptic, auditory, and motor enrichment all seem to have an impact on visual development. This chapter provides two lines of research that study plasticity and its development, one exploring inhibitory interactions during early infancy, the other intersensory interactions that take far longer to mature fully, probably because of a continuing need for the calibration of sensory systems. Both point to the remarkable plasticity of the human brain.
