Once someone is diagnosed with perceptive deception are they stuck with it for the rest of their life? Or is there a cure or some way besides therapy.
All sentient beings: filter perceptions thru what they think, know, understand or believe. For example, when we look at an object, our eyes "see" a tiny image of that object on our retina. The brain then interprets the image as real and distinct from us. A similar process occurs when we watch a 3D movie. The screen is flat but, when wearing 3D glasses, our brains interprets the images as 3D. Fascinating! ...Read more

Is there any truth to the theory of the correlation between placenta location and baby's sex? Girls are supposed to implant to the left & vice versa?
Why do new medical findings very often contradict the old ones? That confuses most of us, especially the lay folks.
Good Company: Yesterday's study results, lead to today's questions, and then tomorrow's better study design. Errors in methodology along the way get perpetuated until better studies come along. This is a continuing area of struggle for physicians as well. We try to determine which study results are correct, and pertain to the patient in front of us. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

At 3d shows, I notice the 3d effects maybe 2-3% of the time. The rest of the time, the picture looks the same with one or both eyes open. All the tests I've tried suggest stereoscopic vision/depth perception is fine ... so why can't I see 3d?
Apparently about 10%: of people can not see in 3D. Because humans have both eyes in front, the possibility of having them work together to create depth perception exists. The fusion in our brains of two slightly different pictures from each of our "cameras"/eyes gives the sense of three-dimensionality. Lazy eye and strabismus are conditions that interfere with eye coordination. It can be corrected, esp in children. ...Read more

Does seawater promote the healing of surface wounds and infections? If so, what are the likely causal mechanisms at play?
No, no, no.: I've been hearing this for 30 years; swim in the ocean, your rash, wound, or whatever will heal. This is further evidence that your parents are not doctors. Seawater contains nasty bacteria, particularly in estuaries and near rocks or coral, and in areas close to fisheries, mines, farms, stormwater drains and sewage plants. People have died. If you have a skin wound or rash, stay out of the ocean! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
