From article:

Quote:A woman whose world has literally been turned upside down has baffled scientists studying her rare condition.

Council worker Bojana Danilovic, 28, sees everything upside down because of an abnormal connection in the way her brain processes images.

Danilovic has to have a special upside down computer screen and keyboard and reads papers from the bottom up. She even has special topsy-turvy official forms to fill in for her job at the Uzice town hall in Serbia.

At home, she watches one TV balanced on its top while the rest of the family watch another.

I question the general assumption that felines are inherently deficient in the area of grammar and sentence structure.

“They say my eyes see the images the right way up but my brain changes them.

That's strange. I thought the images are upside down for everyone and it is the brain the flips it right side up for us... in her case I would assume that is the malfunction? but if it's always been that way what would be the difference really? ...I guess it conflicts with the pull of gravity?

Determined to find results, Stratton wore the telescoping glasses for eight days straight. By day four, his vision was upright (not inverted). H, images appeared upright until he concentrated on them; then they became inverted again. By having to concentrate on his vision to turn it upside down again, especially when he knew images were hitting his retinas in the opposite orientation as normal, Stratton deduced his brain had reprocessed his vision and adapted to the changes in vision.

She's apparently used to it from birth so it shouldn't be a big deal.

Maybe if she was never diagnosed she wouldn't even know she was different?

Exactly! If you're born with a headache, would you know if you've never been without it?
