The magnitude and precision of stereoscopic depth between two probes is often determined by the disparity each has to a common background. If stereoscopic slant of the background is underestimated, a bias is introduced in the PSE of the probes (G. Mitchison & G. Westheimer, 1984). Using random dot stimuli, we show here how more remote surfaces can influence probe PSE via their influence on perceived background surface slant. The bias was reduced when frontal flanking surfaces were placed above… CONTINUE READING
