  • Pictorial Cues to Depth.  Manipulate pictorial cues to depth to see how they influence your depth perception
  • Motion Parallax.  See how motion parallax provides a cue to depth.
  • Vergence.  See how vergence provided a depth cue.
  • Disparity.  An illustration of how disparity arises as object move away from the object of regard.
  • Binocular Disparity and the Horopter.  Illustration of the horopter, the region of zero disparity in space where objects fall on corresponding locations of the two retinas.
  • Types of Binocular Disparity.  Illustration of the difference between crossed and uncrossed disparity.
  • Stereopsis.  Illustration of stereopsis.  Requires anaglyph glasses.
  • Random Dot Stereograms.  Illustration of random element stereograms.  Requires anaglyph glasses.
  • Panum's Fusional Area.  Illustration of the limited region in space where binocular fusion (seeing a single image arising from both eyes) is possible.  For illustration purposes, this fusional area is 10 times the size it is in actuality.
  • Binocular Suppression and Rivalry.  Illustration of binocular suppression, where the image from one eye blocks the perception of the image from the other eye, and binocular rivalry, where the images from the two eye are alternatively seen.
