Topsy-Turvy Vision

By Ruth Hertzman-Miller:
Lyrics by Meg Muckenhoupt
An image projected onto the retina is flipped upside down by the lens,
then half of the optic nerve fibers from each eye cross over to the
other side of the brain in the optic chiasm. If all goes well, the brain
somehow makes sense of the jumble and interprets it as a single
right-side-up and stereoscopic object. Cha cha cha!
