Once sensory fusion has been achieved, motor fusion maintains the single image over a range of eye movements, which is stimulated by retinal disparity. These can be conjugate movements, where the eyes move in the same direction (version movements), or disjugate, where the eyes move in opposite directions (vergence movements).

Changes in retinal disparity alone are capable of providing sufficient information to produce the perception of looming in human observers (Regan & Spekreijse, 1970).
