The 3-dot hyperacuity task was given to two subjects under three experimental paradigms: constant luminance, constant energy and constant duration. Hyperacuity was obtained under conditions (3 dots, 2 msec exposure) which rule out any significant temporal or spatial averaging. There was a clear threshold decrease in the constant luminance paradigm as(More)
A deterministic model for monocular space perception is presented. According to the model, retinal luminance changes due to involuntary eye movements are detected and locally analyzed to yield the angular velocity of each image point. The stable three-dimensional spatial coordinates of viewed objects are then reconstructed using a method of infinitesimal(More)
Rogers and Graham (1979) developed a system to show that head-movement-contingent motion parallax produces monocular depth perception in random dot patterns. Their display system comprised an oscilloscope driven by function generators or a special graphics board that triggered the X and Y deflection of the raster scan signal. Replication of this system(More)
Night vision goggles are head-mounted, unity-power systems designed to allow the human operator to see and operate at night. Field experience and experimental studies have revealed many drawbacks in conventional designs that impair performance. One major drawback is the poor space perception provided by the goggles. The Hadani et al. [J. Opt. Soc. Am. 70,(More)
A problem in space perception concerns how a mobile observer acquires information about the structure of objects. Earlier research derived the optic-flow equations for an eye undergoing pure rotations. It was suggested that, by utilizing three points and two views, one can recover the distance of points and the motion parameters. The radius of the eyeball(More)
Coherent motion of random dot pattern across a stationary stereograting at 1-5.5 deg/s causes an impairment in perceiving the stereograting which is associated with optokinetic nystagmus. This study was aimed towards understanding the cause of the impairment. We tested two alternative hypotheses: (1) that the impairment is caused by efferent-afferent(More)
