Studies of stereopsis in infants have shown that the average age of onset is 3.5 months. This is the same age at which infants first show evidence of another binocular function, namely, preference for binocularly fusible patterns over rivalrous ones. We tracked the development, using two-alternative forced-choice preferential looking, of the two forms of binocular function in 17 infants, 11 male and six female. They were tested at regular intervals until they showed preferences for 1) a fusible… CONTINUE READING
