Binocular Vision

Accordingly, we have seen the emergence of interest in the perception of three-dimensional surface shape using non-planar disparity structures. It will bnocular informative to learn whether a cue combination model can unify these alternative sources of information Landy et al. Azimuth and elevation of 0 deg denotes a horizontal and fronto-parallel trajectory to the left.

If the motion system computes slow 2D motion independently in the left and right eye then the cyclopean average provides an alternative velocity constraint [27][57]. Individual differences reveal two independent motion-in-depth mechanisms.

A neurologist’s notebook, “Stereo Sue”. These left and right monocular receptive fields are depicted in Figure 1A.

Using vertical Gabor functions as bayeesian convenient example, the horizontal receptive field profiles of L and R inputs would be: In many cases, of course, the occluded portion of the rear object is part of a much larger background that contains binocularly fusible features or textures beyond the occluded zone.

Emotional pictures predominate in binocular rivalry. Binocular sensory fusion is limited by spatial resolution.

Moreover, this theoretical work needs to be complemented by fMRI and VER studies identifying neural concomitants of noise and neural adaptation. The interaction of binocular disparity and motion parallax in ninocular computation of depth. Based on macaque V2 physiology and human psychophysics, Livingstone and Hubel proposed that stereopsis and motion were represented only within the magnocellular stream and, by implication, were thus represented in dorsal stream areas including MT.


Two documented influences on binocular rivalry dynamics have a cognitive flavor to them. Psychophysical evidence for separate channels for the perception of form, color, movement, and depth. Please review our privacy policy.

This new view, incidentally, was endorsed by one of the original proponents of the four-channel model, Gian Poggio Stereo Without Epipolar Lines: Indeed, unpublished data from the Harris lab suggests that individuals differ in the degree to which these two factors contribute to perception of motion in depth Nefs et al. Alas, there are some topics alproach we will not touch upon at all, even though they fall within the domain of binocular vision.

For an intersection to exist the left and right eye motion vector must have equivalent horizontal y co-ordinates or zero vertical disparity. Progress in Brain Research.

The quest for consciousness: Human Bajesian of Objects. But which principles or constraints are used? In addition to the survival of adaptation aftereffects induced during suppression, other lines of evidence reveal residual effectiveness of a stimulus suppressed during rivalry.

Clearly, the strongest binocular response will occur when the monocular stimuli are optimal for the position offset or phase difference of the respective receptive fields. Spatial and temporal tuning of motion-in-depth. Relation blnocular stereopsis and rivalry It has long been known that rivalry and stereopsis can be experienced simultaneously e.

The direction of retinal motion facilitates binocular stereopsis.

Local disparity not perceived depth is signaled by binocular neurons in cortical area V1 of the macaque. Briefly, the model first uses very large receptive fields to make a crude position disparity estimate that then constrains phase disparity estimates on the next finer spatial scale. This led them to propose a neural model in which phase disparity units identify false stereo matches due to their different receptive field profiles, while the maximum response of position disparity units encodes the true disparity.


Soliton model of competitive neural dynamics during binocular rivalry. Constraint lines through projection point b and d do not intersect and 3D motion cannot be determined see text for details. Stereomotion processing in the human occipital cortex. Journal of the Optical Society of American. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. In summary, CDOT does not provide a general solution to the inverse problem of local 3D motion because it lacks information on motion direction.

In the next section we turn to what could be construed as the antithesis of stereopsis, i. Abstract This essay reviews major developments —empirical and theoretical —in the field of binocular vision during the last 25 years.

We can define a cyclopean constraint line in terms of the cyclopean origin and projection point on a fronto-parallel screen where and are the averages of the 2D normal co-ordinates for the left and right eye projections. Nevertheless, the bar appearing in front generates illusory contours crossing the solid rectangle, whereas the bar behind does not.
