Ever since Panum, it has been commonly assumed that there is an absolute disparity limit for binocular fusion. It is now found that nearby objects modify this disparity limit. This result sheds new light on several enigmatic phenomena in stereopsis.
It is generally believed that there is an absolute disparity limit for binocular fusion; objects with disparities within this limit, known as Panum's fusional area, will appear fused and single, while objects with disparities outside the limit appear double. It is demonstrated, however, that the disparity gradient, rather than the disparity magnitude,… (More)
Information and Communications Technology offers powerful Web 2.0 tools that can benefit learners with different learning preferences. The rise of video streaming, the increased proliferation of 'on demand' televisual media and new smart phone streaming opportunities have generated a range of web-based media that may usefully support teachers and learners… (More)
BACKGROUND We report on a novel approach to the analysis of suspended particulate data in a rural setting in southern Ontario. Analyses of suspended particulate matter and associated air quality standards have conventionally focussed on 24-hour mean levels of total suspended particulates (TSP) and particulate matter <10 microns, <2.5 microns and <1 micron… (More)
