Rare condition causes woman to see everything upside down

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.

“It may look incredible to other people but to me it’s completely normal," Danilovic said.  "I was born that way. It’s just the way I see the world."

Neurological experts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University say she is suffering from a condition called ’spatial orientation phenomenon.’

“They say my eyes see the images the right way up but my brain changes them," Danilovic said. “But they don’t really seem to know exactly how it happens, just that it does and where it happens in my brain."
