In binocular vision, the lateral displacement of the eyes gives rise to both horizontal and vertical disparities between the images projected onto the left and right retinae. While it is well known that horizontal disparity is exploited by the binocular visual system of birds and mammals to enable depth perception, the role of vertical disparity is still largely unclear. In this study, neuronal activity in the visual forebrain (visual Wulst) of behaving barn owls to vertical disparity was… CONTINUE READING
