This method made it possible to study exclusively cortical processing of binocular information by disparity-sensitive neurons, and it has attained widespread use among neuroscientists and psychologists. It is now largely forgotten that in the last century, the famous neuroanatomist Ramón y Cajal had worked on random dot stereograms as a means of encoding written information.
