Help re: Variation of function at cortical map boundaries

In "Consciousness Reconsidered" Owen Flanagan quotes William
Calvin (1990 p175) concerning the 1980's work of Merzenich, Kaas
and Nelson concerning the rapid shifting of function-boundaries (in
as little as a week) e.g. the boundary between face and hand cells. 
        Unfortunately, however, Flanagan does not give a reference
for Calvin's source. Can someone out there please give me a
reference for this and possibly any follow-up work? 

Thanks in advance - Gord
