VERTICAL DISPARITIES

Authors


Abstract

It has been suggested that stereopsis could be explained on a physiological and neuroanatomical basis. However, evidence on depth perception tends to rely on transversely disparate inputs. It was thought that if the explanation lies in the structures of the eye, vertical disparities might result in a depth perception also. The evidence obtained is in favour of this hypothesis but appears to contradict the assumption of different depth organizations depending on crossed or uncrossed visual pathways.
