When the differences of the projections are too large, a phenomenon of binocular rivalry (BR) occurs.
The phenomenon of binocular rivalry is widely used in perception research--for investigating the influence of adaptation on perception [1], the interaction of different sensations [2], the role of heredity in perception [3] etc.
The new method to assess interocular differences (eye dominance) in observers with normal acuity and stereopsis has many advantages over popular sighting measures, and provides a more objective measure than those based on binocular rivalry. The method consists in dichoptically presenting two streams of randomly-selected alphanumeric characters at speeds around 5Hz (dichoptic RSVP) and the observers have to detect a particular character.
The complete suppression of a monocular input under dichoptic viewing conditions has been described with single presentation of target and mask (dichoptic masking, see Breitmeyer, 1984, for a review, and Michaels and Turvey, 1979), during binocular rivalry (see the review by Blake and Logothetis, 2002), flash suppression (Wolfe, 1984), and more recently in the continuous flash suppression technique (Tsuchiya and Koch, 2005).
The principle of using binocular rivalry to detect differences between stereo images has been anecdotally reported by aerial photo interpreters but has not been previously measured.
As a direct test of binocular rivalry in inspection, an experiment was run to test stereo viewing (both types) against nonstereo viewing to determine whether stereo viewing led to improved defect detection performance and whether it removed or reduced the effect of inspecting for multiple fault or target types.
As done in past experiments on adult MD, we assess the plasticity effect by means of binocular rivalry, comparing eye dominance before and after eye-patching.
All subjects were naive to the experiment, had normal or corrected-to-normal visual acuity, and did not show strong eye dominance (ratio between the two eyes binocular rivalry mean phases durations [less than or equal to] 1.5).
One of the advantages of the binocular rivalry test is that it is much less influenced by these factors.
