Auditory or Visual Learners --Really??

Neuroscience debunks earlier research, such as auditory or visual learners.  Learning is not "hard wired."  Our brains are flexible and respond to experience.  Learn about the amazing plasticity of the brain, a surprise to most people.  
Now all of us educators need to rethink what we were taught in earlier years and appreciate how our brains work and adapt to many stimuli in the learning process.  This was really a WOW article for me.  Was it a surprise to you too?  What observations have you noticed with your students interacting with visual and auditory stimuli?  Any changes?
