Because a dichoptic means for presentation was used and dissimilar objects were presented to the two eyes, observers stated which of the two stimuli (the right or the left eye's) they perceived from instant to instant and as the monocular stimuli moved into different visual field locations.
It unquestionably belongs to the calyptrate family Anthomyiidae because of the following combination of characters: (1) head holoptic in male, dichoptic in female; (2) female with a pair of crossed interfrontal setae; (3) lower calypter well developed; (4) tiny hair-like setulae present beneath tip of scutellum; (5) vein A1 extended to wing margin as a weak fold; (6) male surstyli and cerci united by vertical sclerotized connections immediately distal to lateral cercal apodemes; (7) spiracles VI and VII present in female abdomen.
Binocular pairs of targets were presented dichoptically and sequentially to the right or left eye using a monitor and LCD glasses system synched at 60 dichoptic pairs per second.
Effects of ayahuasca on binocular rivalry with dichoptic stimulus alternation.
People usually show a stable preference for one of their eyes when monocular viewing is required ('sighting dominance') or under dichoptic stimulation conditions ('sensory eye-dominance').
For measuring fixation disparity we determined the physical horizontal offset of dichoptic nonius lines when the participant perceived them as collinear (see Figure 2).
He achieved dichoptic combination by another means: he placed a board between his eyes and attached blue and yellow fabric in equivalent positions on each side, or the fabric was placed in front of the fixation point.
Age differences in central perceptual processing; a dichoptic backward masking investigation.
The anaglyphic lenses provided dichoptic presentation such that each eye viewed a separate and independent field of stimuli.
To prevent conscious awareness of the prime, a dichoptic, backward-masking technique was used, in which the prime is presented to one eye and a pattern mask to the other eye (this produces central rather than peripheral masking).
The reasons for the emphasis on vergence are the importance of the specification of dichoptic images for their fusion and the dominance of vergence over accommodation in oculomotor behavior (Hollins, 1976).
