Good movies change people’s view of the world all the time, but how many can say a movie has fundamentally altered their vision forever? 
BruceBridgeman can say that!
In terms of how he sees the world, there is life before Hugo, and life after Hugo.
On 16 February this year, Bridgeman went to thecinema with his wife to see Martin Scorsese’s 3D film.
 Like everyone else, he paid for a pair of 3D glasses, despite thinking they would be a completewaste of money.
 Bridgeman, a 67-year-old neuroscientist at the University of California in Santa Cruz, grew up nearly stereoblind, that is, withouttrue perception of depth. 
-like you only saw the world in 2D, for example people would start discussing about a bird that just jumped out of the treeand you can’t see that, like the bird was part of the background.
Almost as soon as he began to watch the film, the characters leapt from the screen ina way he had never experienced.
And when he stepped out of the cinema, the world looked different. For the first time, Bridgeman saw a lamppoststanding out from the background. And he’s seen the world in 3D ever since that day.
Like some part of his brain had awakened.
Conventional wisdom saysthat what happened to Bridgeman is impossible.
Like many of the 5-10% of the population living like that, he was resigned to seeing a world withoutdepth.
The question is why after several decades of living in a flat, two-dimensional world did Bridgeman’s brain spontaneously begin to process 3D images?
