Dave and Ben did a slightly less torture-like experiment where Dave or Ben (was it dave or was it ben, children?) wore prismatic glasses that changed the angle of vision. I seem to remember that after a fairly short time they had adapted and could throw and catch. And when the glasses were removed there was a period of re-adaptation to normality. will dig out the link. http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/content/kitchenscience/nature/exp/motor-learning/i think your brain would sort it out and you wouldn't notice. let's face it the image we perceived internally isn't a nice clean singular image; its two upside down images sent to the opposing sides of the brain. it takes a lot of processing to get to what we consider as normal - and I would have thought that the brain would have the plasticity to process to a similar result from a different set of inputs.
It wasn't intelligently designed, it evolved that way.
It really doesn't make the brain work any harder which way it is once it has learned up from down.What is a bit weirdyful and have agreatlargymount science brainyfolks deepworry is why the leftyside eyeballys are connected to the rightyside brainymold and versyviceyforth if you beholdylarge my thinky.(Apologies to Stanley Unwin.)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Unwin_(comedian)#Some_phrases_from_Unwinese
I think Stanley would have been pleased with you effort there Geezer. In fact it could have been writypenmould by the great man himself.Go to the top of class.Now then Mr Sheepseyeballs, (a delecacy in some parts of the world, I am led to understand, though the eyedea doesn't appeal to me) (sorry about the cornea pun) the thing with these here lenses, such as those in your eye or a camera, is that the light passing through gets turned upside down. That's just the way it is, not a deseyegn fault. To turn it back up the right way again, you would need a second lens or prism. This would mean a much larger eye to accomodate the second lens.[attachment=15030]Mummsy nature thought it would be a better eyedea idea to just let the old brain box sort it out. This means that the grey matter in your bonce can sort out how you see stuff even if your head is tilted, or has been put on the wrong way up.
