Sample text

It seems that the idea of disparity detectors at an early stage of visual processing was first proposed by Jack Pettigrew in his undergraduate thesis written in the University of Sydney in 1965. He got the idea while inspecting a Julesz random-dot stereogram and mentioned it to his supervisor Peter Bishop who was working on binocular cells in the cat visual cortex, but not with this particular idea in mind. Bishop, suggested to Pettigrew that he repeat Hubel and Wiesel's experiments on the visual cortex of the cat using a Risley prism to control the disparity of the images from a single display rather than using separate stimuli for each eye.

The binocular visual field is the portion of the total field within which an object must lie to be visible to both eyes for a given position of the eyes. The binocular visual field is flanked by two monocular sectors within which objects are visible to only one eye. 1). Each monocular visual field is the sum of the binocular field and the monocular sector for that eye. The left and right boundaries of the binocular field, formed by the nose, are about 114° apart when the eyes converge symmetrically and less when they converge on an eccentric point.

M is the distance between F and P, a is the interocular distance. Angle 6 is the binocular subtense of P and to is the binocular subtense of F. 1, or in terms of corresponding retinal points. Corresponding retinal points have the same positions on two idealized spherical retinas that are superimposed. Imagine two identical eyes, each with a fovea and a horizontal meridian. The congruence of the nodal points, fovea, and horizontal meridians brings all other pairs of geometrically defined corresponding points into congruence.
