About Dr. Susan Barry
Susan R. Barry, Ph.D. is an educator, scientist, and author who has spoken worldwide on the topics of neuroplasticity and binocular vision. She earned her B.A. in biology from Wesleyan University in 1976 and Ph.D. in biology from Princeton University in 1981. She has worked as a research neuroscientist at the University of Miami Medical School, the University of Michigan, the Marine Biological Laboratory, and NASA's Johnson Space Center and published papers on synaptic transmission and eye-head-hand coordination. In 1992, she joined the faculty of Mount Holyoke College where she rose to the rank of full professor, retiring from the college in 2016. The Princeton Review lists Barry among the 300 outstanding college teachers in the U.S., her paper on the work of Frederick W. Brock was selected as the best published paper in the Journal of Behavioral Optometry in 2011, and in 2013 she received the Meribeth E. Cameron Faculty Award for Scholarship from Mount Holyoke College.
For years, Barry taught her neurobiology students the conventional scientific wisdom that stereovision could develop only during a critical period in early childhood. She even used her own vision history to support this dogma since she had been cross-eyed since early infancy and was stereoblind. However, at age forty-eight, she consulted a developmental optometrist who prescribed a program of optometric vision therapy. To her utter astonishment, her vision improved dramatically, and she experienced her first 3D views. Dubbed 'Stereo Sue' by Oliver Sacks in a 2006 New Yorker article by that name, Dr. Barry has gone on to write her own book Fixing My Gaze: A Scientist's Journey into Seeing in Three Dimensions (Basic Books, 2009) which was rated the fourth best science book for 2009 by the editors of Amazon.com, selected as one of the best sci-tech books of 2009 by the Library Journal, and has been translated into seven languages. Barry's second book, Coming to Our Senses: A Boy Who Learned to See, A Girl Who Learned to Hear, and How We All Discover the World, will be published by Basic Books in the summer of 2021.
