  • SummaryPsychophysical tests reveal three classes of wide-field disparity detectors in man, responding respectively to crossed (near), uncrossed (far), and zero disparities. The probability of lacking one of these classes of detectors is about 30% which means that 2.7% of the population possess no wide-field stereopsis in one hemisphere. This small percentage corresponds to the probability of squint among adults, suggesting that fusional mechanisms might be disrupted when stereopsis is absent in… CONTINUE READING
