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 interstimulus interval. The controversy resulting from the misunderstanding is reviewed briefly but optimistically.

Temporal discrimination as a function of total presentation time
Two triangles (Δ and ∇) were presented successively at the same spatial locus for binocular viewing. Manipulation of stimulus duration and interstimulus interval revealed that accuracy in
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.
Perception of Temporal Order and Relative Visual Latency
Judgments of temporal order to monocular pairs of flashes of equal luminance delivered at various onset asynchronies to the light-adapted fovea and periphery show that uncertainty of temporal order
Assessments of temporal discrimination in vision
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
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.
