Summary

When neuroscientist Susan Barry was fifty years old, she experienced the deliriously novel sense of immersion in a three-dimensional world. Barry had been cross-eyed since early infancy, and told that there was no way she could ever see in 3-D. But after intensive training, she was able to accomplish what was once considered impossible.
