* Special custom-designed goggles were used in a series of experiments about visual processing in the brain. Using mirrors, they flipped the wearer's normal field-of-view from right to left and upside-down. Volunteers who wore them continuously for two weeks discovered that after a while, they saw things right-side-up and in their proper orientation side-to-side, because their brains had caught on and stopped correcting for the natural inversion of images that occurs when the eyes capture light. Once they took the goggles off, these volunteers saw the world flip-flopped and reversed ''without'' the eyewear until their brains' visual centers caught on again.
