A receptive field which responds to a cells optimal stimulus if it is presented to either eye.
The segment of the optic array sampled by both eyes.
Occurs when the two eyes are presented with different stimuli. Instead of seeing a summation of the two images, our perception switches from one image to the other.
Vision performed with two eyes/sensors whose outputs are often used to extract relative stereoscopic depth.
The central region of the visual field from which light enter both eyes.
The ability to focus upon an object with both eyes and create a single stereoscopic image. Binocularity requires highly convergent orbits. The evolutionary increases among primates in the degree of orbital convergence have been noted to correlate with the expansion of visual brain structures and, as a consequence, with the overall size of the brain. It is therefore thought that the evolution of brain size in primates was associated with visual specialization.
When the same image is presented to each eye.
