Neuroscientist Susan Barry was born cross-eyed and stereoblind. She thought there was no chance of improvement, that the brainís period for development had passed. She was wrong, and thanks to surgery and therapy, she began to see in three dimensions. Fixing My Gaze is that story, a revelatory account of the brainís capacity for change, and a joyous celebration of the pleasure of our senses.
Susan R. Barry is a professor of neurobiology in the Department of Biological Sciences at Mount Holyoke College. She lives in South Hadley, Massachusetts.
