Changes in retinal disparity alone are capable of providing sufficient information to produce the perception of looming in human observers (Regan & Spekreijse, 1970).
Changes in retinal disparity are necessarily accompanied by the side-to-side movements of one or both retinal images (Regan & Beverley, 1973b).
Regan and Beverley (1973a, 1973c) determined that humans are more sensitive at detecting the oscillations of a target when retinal disparity information accompanies lateral motion, if the target is close to the plane of fixation (within 5[minutes]-7.
