Conflicting results have been obtained in assessments of the discrimination of visual order under dichoptic viewing conditions. Part of the difficulty has centered on experimental controls; a more important part on the interpretation of results. In vision, much of the filtering of stimulus information is achieved at a peripheral (neuro-retinal) level of processing. Eliminating the peripheral sources of filtering (inhibition) or reducing their effects with dichoptic presentation methods results…

Visual temporal discrimination: A point of order
The discrepancies in results between two experiments on the visual detection of temporal order are discussed, and it is suggested that the differences arise in great part from the definition of
New times of the minima and light elements of SW Lacertae
SW Lacertae is a short-period variable star of the W UMa-type. A total of 261 photoelectric observations for eachU, B, andV filter were obtained in 1986 while 522 photoelectric observations for eachB
The eclipsing binary AB Andromedae
In this paper the two newB- andV-light curves of the eclipsing variable star AB Andromedae, obtained during 1979 with the 48 in reflector of the National Observatory of Athens, are represented and
Short-term memory: Are item and position information stored independently?
Results suggest that the position of an item in the array and the identity of the item are stored as a unit and are forgotten or retained together.


Visual Discrimination of Temporal Order
This study employed pairs of brief stimuli with each member presented to a separate eye; that is, dichoptic presentations, and minimum separations for the correct discrimination of order were found to be far less than those obtained in experiments in which both stimuli were presented to the same eye or to both eyes.
Observer strategies in dichoptic viewing of successive stimuli
Enhanced ability to correctly perceive order of brief visual stimuli presented dichoptically may be interpreted as learning by the observer to adopt an appropriate strategy.
