Brain activation during maintenance of standing postures in humans. (1/1648)

The regulatory mechanism of bipedal standing in humans remains to be elucidated. We investigated neural substrates for maintaining standing postures in humans using PET with our mobile gantry PET system. Normal volunteers were instructed to adopt several postures: supine with eyes open toward a target; standing with feet together and eyes open or eyes closed; and standing on one foot or with two feet in a tandem relationship with eyes open toward the target. Compared with the supine posture, standing with feet together activated the cerebellar anterior lobe and the right visual cortex (Brodmann area 18/19), and standing on one foot increased cerebral blood flow in the cerebellar anterior vermis and the posterior lobe lateral cortex ipsilateral to the weight-bearing side. Standing in tandem was accompanied by activation within the visual association cortex, the anterior and posterior vermis as well as within the midbrain. Standing with eyes closed activated the prefrontal cortex (Brodmann area 8/9). Our findings confirmed that the cerebellar vermis efferent system plays an important role in maintenance of standing posture and suggested that the visual association cortex may subserve regulating postural equilibrium while standing.  (+info)

Optical imaging of functional domains in the cortex of the awake and behaving monkey. (2/1648)

As demonstrated by anatomical and physiological studies, the cerebral cortex consists of groups of cortical modules, each comprising populations of neurons with similar functional properties. This functional modularity exists in both sensory and association neocortices. However, the role of such cortical modules in perceptual and cognitive behavior is unknown. To aid in the examination of this issue we have applied the high spatial resolution optical imaging methodology to the study of awake, behaving animals. In this paper, we report the optical imaging of orientation domains and blob structures, approximately 100-200 micrometer in size, in visual cortex of the awake and behaving monkey. By overcoming the spatial limitations of other existing imaging methods, optical imaging will permit the study of a wide variety of cortical functions at the columnar level, including motor and cognitive functions traditionally studied with positron-emission tomography or functional MRI techniques.  (+info)

Dynamics of horizontal vergence movements: interaction with horizontal and vertical saccades and relation with monocular preferences. (3/1648)

We studied the dynamics of pure vergence shifts and vergence shifts combined with vertical and horizontal saccades. It is known from earlier studies that horizontal saccades accelerate horizontal vergence. We wanted to obtain a more complete picture of the interactions between version and vergence. Therefore we studied pure version (horizontal and vertical), pure vergence (divergence and convergence) and combinations of both in five adult subjects with normal binocular vision and little phoria (< 5 degrees). The visual targets were LED's in isovergence arrays presented at two distances (35 and 130 cm) in a dimly lit room. Two targets were continuously lit during each trial and gaze-shifts were paced by a metronome. The two subjects with a strong monocular preference made vergence eye movements together with small horizontal saccades during pure vergence tasks. The other subjects, who did not have a strong monocular preference, made pure vergence movements (without saccades). These findings, suggest that monocular preferences influence the oculomotor strategy during vergence tasks. Vergence was facilitated by both horizontal and vertical saccades but vergence peak-velocity during horizontal saccades was higher than during vertical saccades.  (+info)

Functional micro-organization of primary visual cortex: receptive field analysis of nearby neurons. (4/1648)

It is well established that multiple stimulus dimensions (e.g., orientation and spatial frequency) are mapped onto the surface of striate cortex. However, the detailed organization of neurons within a local region of striate cortex remains unclear. Within a vertical column, do all neurons have the same response selectivities? And if not, how do they most commonly differ and why? To address these questions, we recorded from nearby pairs of simple cells and made detailed spatiotemporal maps of their receptive fields. From these maps, we extracted and analyzed a variety of response metrics. Our results provide new insights into the local organization of striate cortex. First, we show that nearby neurons seldom have very similar receptive fields, when these fields are characterized in space and time. Thus, there may be less redundancy within a column than previously thought. Moreover, we show that correlated discharge increases with receptive field similarity; thus, the local dissimilarity between neurons may allow for noise reduction by response pooling. Second, we show that several response variables are clustered within striate cortex, including some that have not received much attention such as response latency and temporal frequency. We also demonstrate that other parameters are not clustered, including the spatial phase (or symmetry) of the receptive field. Third, we show that spatial phase is the single parameter that accounts for most of the difference between receptive fields of nearby neurons. We consider the implications of this local diversity of spatial phase for population coding and construction of higher-order receptive fields.  (+info)

Configuration saliency revealed in short duration binocular rivalry. (5/1648)

Supra-threshold spatial integration was studied by testing the saliency of multi-Gabor element configurations in short duration binocular rivalry (dichoptic masking) conditions. Dichoptic presentations allow for a competition between spatially overlapping supra-threshold stimuli that involve non-overlapping monocular receptive fields in the first stage of visual filtering. Different spatial configurations of Gabor patches (sigma = lambda = 0.12 degree) were presented to one eye (target) together with a bandpass noise presented to the other eye (mask). After a short rivalry period (120 ms) in which a dominance of one eye was established, a probe (a randomly positioned small rectangle of reduced contrast in the target) was presented for additional detection period (80 ms). Probe detection performance was measured (two-alternative-forced choice paradigm (2AFC) by finding the mask contrast leading to 79% correct response. Results show that configuration saliency is consistently expressed as dominance in short-duration binocular rivalry, with similar results obtained for longer durations (200 ms and continuous presentations). We find that textures of high-contrast randomly oriented patches are more dominant than uniform textures where the effect decreases and eventually reverses with decreasing of contrast. For supra-threshold contours, however, we find that smooth collinear contours are more dominant than 'jagged' ones, regardless of phase and contrast. These findings suggest principles underlying early lateral integration mechanisms based on contrast dependent inhibitory and excitatory connections. This mechanism could be based on iso-orientation surround (2D) inhibition and collinear (1D) facilitation, with inhibition being more effective at high contrasts.  (+info)

Instability of torsion during smooth asymmetric vergence. (6/1648)

Several categories of torsional eye movements obey Listing's law; however, systematic deviations from this law occur during vergence. Two kinematic models attempt to incorporate these deviations, both of which are supported by experimental evidence; however, they lead to different torsion predictions. These discrepancies have been explained in terms of experimental procedures, but it now seems likely from several recent studies that individual differences in torsion patterns may also be important. This study therefore examines the variation of torsion during a smooth asymmetric vergence task in which a fixation target was moved along the line-of-sight of the right eye at 15 degrees elevation; each of five subjects observed five trials of both inward and outward target motion, repeated in two sessions several weeks apart. There were no significant group differences in left or right eye torsion between trials or sessions, suggesting that monocular torsion patterns were relatively stable over time. When examined more closely, however, the torsion patterns shown by some individuals did vary for inward versus outward target motion. Hence, monocular torsion was idiosyncratic and depended on the direction in which fixation was changing (convergence or divergence). In a binocular analysis, cycloversion varied dramatically between subjects and depended on the direction of target motion; however, this was not the case for cyclovergence. In summary, cyclovergence is relatively stable and depends on where the eyes are looking, whereas cycloversion (and hence monocular torsion) is relatively unstable and depends on how they came to be in that particular horizontal and vertical orientation. These findings help to explain the controversy surrounding the torsional behaviour of the human eye during vergence.  (+info)

The influence of large scanning eye movements on stereoscopic slant estimation of large surfaces. (7/1648)

The results of several experiments demonstrate that the estimated magnitude of perceived slant of large stereoscopic surfaces increases with the duration of the presentation. In these experiments, subjects were free to make eye movements. A possible explanation for the increase is that the visual system needs to scan the stimulus with eye movements (which take time) before it can make a reliable estimate of slant. We investigated the influence of large scanning eye movements on stereoscopic slant estimation of large surfaces. Six subjects estimated the magnitude of slant about the vertical or horizontal axis induced by large-field stereograms of which one half-image was transformed by horizontal scale, horizontal shear, vertical scale, vertical shear, divergence or rotation relative to the other half-image. The experiment was blocked in three sessions. Each session was devoted to one of the following fixation strategies: central fixation, peripheral (20 deg) fixation and active scanning of the stimulus. The presentation duration in each of the sessions was 0.5, 2 or 8 s. Estimations were done with and without a visual reference. The magnitudes of estimated slant and the perceptual biases were not significantly influenced by the three fixation strategies. Thus, our results provide no support for the hypothesis that the time used for the execution of large scanning eye movements explains the build-up of estimated slant with the duration of the stimulus presentation.  (+info)

An orientation anisotropy in the effects of scaling vertical disparities. (8/1648)

Garding et al. (Vis Res 1995;35:703-722) proposed a two-stage theory of stereopsis. The first uses horizontal disparities for relief computations after they have been subjected to a process called disparity correction that utilises vertical disparities. The second stage, termed disparity normalisation, is concerned with computing metric representations from the output of stage one. It uses vertical disparities to a much lesser extent, if at all, for small field stimuli. We report two psychophysical experiments that tested whether human vision implements this two-stage theory. They tested the prediction that scaling vertical disparities to simulate different viewing distances to the fixation point should affect the perceived amplitudes of vertically but not horizontally oriented ridges. The first used elliptical half-cylinders and the 'apparently circular cylinder' judgement task of Johnston (Vis Res 1991;31:1351-1360). The second experiment used parabolic ridges and the amplitude judgement task of Buckley and Frisby (Vis Res 1993;33:919-934). Both studies broadly confirmed the anisotropy prediction by finding that large scalings of vertical disparities simulating near distances had a strong effect on the perceived amplitudes of the vertically oriented stimuli but little effect on the horizontal ones. When distances > 25 cm were simulated there were no significant differential effects and various methodological reasons are offered for this departure from expectations.  (+info)

Binocular rivalry has intrigued researchers for over two centuries, but research into its neural mechanisms was until recently limited to behavioral and animal studies. The availability of functional magnetic resonance imaging since the 1990s has boosted the neuroscientific investigation of binocular rivalry in humans. Functional neuroimaging has revealed an involvement of all levels of the brain’s visual processing hierarchy in rivalry dynamics, including early subcortical and cortical stages, functionally specialized visual areas, and non-sensory frontoparietal regions. Moreover, variants of binocular rivalry have helped to elucidate the neural fate of unconscious information during binocular rivalry suppression. The findings from neuroimaging research are integrated into a comprehensive view on how different processing stages interact to resolve perceptual conflict in the human brain.
Binocular vision is the most important visual cue for spatial orientation in many sports. In this study, we investigated how binocular vision was influenced by an eye training program that may be used to improve individuals oculomotor function. The experiment involved twenty-four female student athletes from team ball sports (soccer, basketball, handball). After an initial testing session, 12 participants were randomly allocated to the experimental group. Optometric investigation which included synoptophore testing and a test of dissociated horizontal phoria based on the Maddox method was performed three times: before the experiment, after eight weeks of eye training (3 times a week for 20 minutes), and four weeks after the experiment was terminated. Eye exercise methodology was based on orthoptic, sport and psychological aspects of performance. The phoria screening examination showed that exophoria was the most frequent disorder of binocular vision. Low fusional vergence range was also ...
Binocular Vision: Disorders and Treatment - For many, the term binocular vision conjures images of super powers or the rare ability to spot objects far away, but having binocular vision simply means
Stimulation of corresponding retinal areas with dissimilar (fusible, rivalrous) colours forms the basis of evaluating a relative afferent defect with the SAFE instrument. The centre square is equivalent to the white light of the Worth 4 dot test, the only one of the four Worth lights viewed binocularly. The reversal of colour rivalry suppression follows a sequence similar to that of fusion recovery with the Worth 4 dot test.1 Johnson reported an orderly progression from suppression to retinal rivalry to fusion and then to reverse suppression as NDFs of increasing optical density were placed over the eye without the relative afferent defect while viewing the 4 dot flashlight.1 We found the SAFE instrument a reliable indicator of difference in visual input from the right and left eyes in normal subjects viewing through unilateral test NDFs and in amblyopes. The amblyopic eye is identified when the amblyope perceives a blue-green centre square at baseline-that is, when the amblyopic eye is viewing ...
Binocular rivalry (BR) is an intriguing phenomenon that occurs when two different images are presented, one to each eye, resulting in alternation or rivalry between the percepts. The phenomenon has been studied for nearly 200 years, with renewed and intensive investigation over recent decades. The rate of perceptual switching has long been known to vary widely between individuals but to be relatively stable within individuals. A recent twin study demonstrated that individual variation in BR rate is under substantial genetic control, a finding that also represented the first report, using a large study, of genetic contribution for any post-retinal visual processing phenomenon. The twin study had been prompted by earlier ...

What is binocular vision? What we see is the result of signals sent from the eyes to the brain. Usually the brain receives signals from both (bi) eyes (ocular) at the same time. The information contained in the signal from each eye is slightly different and with well-functioning binocular vision, the brain is able to use these differences to judge distances and coordinate eye movements.

When monocular images cannot be fused, perception alternates between the two (or more) possible images. This phenomenon, binocular rivalry (BR), is driven by the physical properties of the stimuli (size, contrast, spatial frequency, etc.) but it can also be modulated by attention to features of one of the rival stimuli (Chong et al., 2005; Dieter et al., 2016) and by attentional demands independent of the BR assessment (Paffen et al., 2008). Instead of the perceptually demanding tasks previously used to bias BR, we designed a simple counting task. We monocularly presented a number of trials (around 10 min) with a set of symbols and asked participants to count them. We found that after this task, dominance durations decreased for the unattended channel, and did not change for the attended channel. The results parallel those of Paffen et al. (2008) and square nicely with Levelts second proposition, suggesting that the counting task effectively increased the sensibility of one channel which led to
A binocular adaptive optics visual simulator has been devised for the study of stereopsis and of binocular vision in general. The apparatus is capable of manipulating the aberrations of each eye separately while subjects perform visual tests. The correcting device is a liquid-crystal-on-silicon spatial light modulator permitting the control of aberrations in the two eyes of the observer simultaneously in open loop. The apparatus can be operated as an electro-optical binocular phoropter with two micro-displays projecting different scenes to each eye. Stereo-acuity tests (three-needle test and random-dot stereograms) have been programmed for exploring the performance of the instrument. As an example, stereo-acuity has been measured in two subjects in the presence of defocus and/or trefoil, showing a complex relationship between the eyes optical quality and stereopsis. This instrument might serve for a better understanding of the relationship of binocular vision and stereopsis performance and the ...

Many binocular vision disorders cause patients so suffer from similar symptoms. First, keep in mind that signs and symptoms are abnormalities that can indicate a potential problem, so its always a good idea to get an evaluation by a licensed medical professional (optometrist, ophthalmologist) if you experience any of these. Signs are objective - that means it can be seen, evaluated, or tested (for example a visible eye turn). Symptoms are subjective, meaning experienced or apparent only to the patient (for example eye pain, tired eyes, etc.).

(HealthDay)-For older Medicare beneficiaries, having a disorder of binocular vision is associated with increased odds of musculoskeletal injury, fracture, and fall, according to a study published in the January issue of JAMA Ophthalmology.
The aim of this study was to investigate differential aspects of spatial vision in subjects presenting with macular degeneration and visual snow. Emphasis was placed on the effects of aging and/or ocular disease on binocular summation and the measurement of differences between the two eyes in a number of visual tasks. Accommodation performance was measured for both pre-presbyopic and presbyopic observers. The results showed no binocular advantage for either group for far or intermediate stimulus vergences. The effects of visual crowding upon visual acuity were tested using a Landolt C optotype with surrounding distractors. Binocular advantage was found to be higher along the line of sight and to decrease in the near periphery. The presence of distractors reduced visual resolution significantly at every eccentricity, with the effect becoming more pronounced in the periphery. The latter was observed for both monocular and binocular viewing conditions leading to the suggestion that the involvement ...
Introduction: Body Mass Index (BMI) is of increasing interest to eye care practitioners. Associations have recently been proven between high BMI and several diseases of are affecting the eyes, including AMD, intracranial hypertension, optic disc cupping and glaucoma. The symptoms of dizziness and vertigo have also been associated with high BMI. However, to these authors knowledge, there has been no study performed comparing BMI to binocular function. Methods: In this analytical-descriptive study, 119 randomly-selected young subjects had their BMI measured, along with refractive error, dissociated phoria, NPC, vergence ranges and facility, and stereopsis. Results: In most situations, the subjects with the normal and overweight had better performance than other two groups. Also the worst performance was related to underweight subjects. The one-way ANOVA showed only statistically significant difference between mean of near point of convergence and vergence facility in different states of BMI. Conclusion:
We have shown that binocular rivalry from interocular temporal conflict is strongly influenced by tactile and auditory temporal signals. Cross-modal signals temporally congruent with one of the rivaling visual temporal frequencies extended that stimulus percept duration if already dominant or promoted it to dominance if suppressed (Fig. 1). Decreasing cross-modal signal intensity reduced the effect, yet weak auditory and tactile stimuli together combined to produce a strong influence (Fig. 3A-C), suggesting audio-tactile summation in a common temporal mechanism. In support of this, when discrete auditory and tactile stimuli were alternated in time to create a supramodal frequency matching one of the visual stimuli, a strong binocular rivalry bias was observed in favor of the congruent visual stimulus. In further support, auditory and tactile modulations with maximum amplitude did not influence rivalry when combined in opposite phase (see low temporal frequencies in Fig. 3B), strengthening the ...
Both foveae of light-adapted subjects were stimulated at the same time with monocularly presented lights of increasing or decreasing luminance. Combinations judged just detectable violated predictions of the energy summation and the probability summation hypotheses of binocular interaction. Rather, the results can be explained by independent central neural mechanisms that signal the sum or the difference of stimuli to two eyes. ...
A key component of a comprehensive eye examination is the assessment of eye teaming, or binocular vision. Eye teaming, or binocular vision, is a visual efficiency skill where both eyes work together in a precise and coordinated way. Good eye teaming allows sustained, single, and comfortable vision, and is the basis for depth perception.
If you moved from the United States to France as a child you would likely become fluent in French in a short period of time, but if you moved to France as an adult you might never become fluent. This difference in the capacity to learn language exists because there are sensitive periods in development when the brain is particularly plastic and able receive and retain information with greater efficacy.. There is a well-established field of sensitive period biology that seeks to explain how people learn to speak, how birds learn to sing, and how our sensory systems wire up among other things. The field has been particularly successful in explaining how the brain coordinates the information streaming in from the two eyes to allow binocular vision useful for depth perception. In the last century, it was discovered that when a person was born with a lazy eye or had their vision clouded in one eye by a cataract then their binocular vision would be impaired for a lifetime. However, if a correction ...

ML Mono is used when the addition required is so high that binocular vision cannot be achieved even with the help of convergence prisms. The limit to which this is possible varies from induvidual to induvidual, but falls withing the range of 8 cm to 12 cm. A monocular system should always be considered if the reading distance is less than 10 cm. It is also highly advantageous, at very close reading distances, to be able to easily look over the lens in order to be able to get your bearings over distances that are longer than those for which the magnification had been determined. It is often the case among people with reduced vision that one eye is noticeably better than the other and that the other eye is not used because it is so weak. The use of occlusion id then often necessary to treat the weaker eye. This lens blocks most of the vision while allowing light to pass through. Black and skin-colored patches are avalible if more opaque occlusion is necessary. ...

The traditional structured light binocular vision measurement system consists of two cameras and a projector, which can be regarded to two monocular vision systems composed by the projector and a camera. In this paper, we present a threedimensional (3D) measurement method based on the combination of binocular vision and monocular vision. The common field of view is reconstructed by a binocular vision system, and the missing data area is filled up by two monocular vision systems. In order to improve the measurement accuracy and unify the three world coordinate systems, a calibration method is proposed. The calibration procedure consists of a binocular vision system calibration, the two monocular vision systems calibration and a globe optimization of the three systems for unifying to a common reference. In monocular vision system calibration, a new method based on virtual target is proposed and used to set up the coordinate relations. We use a projector and two cameras to build a vision system for ...

Fixation disparity exists when there is a small misalignment of the eyes when viewing with binocular vision. The misaligment may be vertical, horizontal or both. The misalignment (a few minutes of arc) is much smaller than that of strabismus, which prevents binocular vision, although it may reduce a patients level of stereopsis. A patient may or may not have fixation disparity and a patient may have a different fixation disparity at distance than near. There are several methods to quantify fixation disparity. The Mallett card, the Bernell lantern slide, the Wesson Card and the Disparometer may be used. A patients associated phoria is the amount of prism needed to reduce their fixation disparity to zero minutes of arc. The Mallett Fixation Disparity Unit Instrument used to measure the associated heterophoria (or compensating prism). It consists of a small central fixation letter X surrounded by two letters O, one on each side of X, the three letters being seen binocularly, and two coloured ...
This study was designed to determine how the developing visual system weights retinal blur and disparity in generating accommodative and vergence responses when both cues are present, as is the case under naturalistic binocular viewing conditions. Blur and disparity cues were placed in conflict with each other and the impact of this cue-conflict on accommodative and vergence performance was assessed across a wide range of ages (2.0 months to 40.8 years). Three hypothetical patterns of results were derived for Experiments 1 and 2 to provide insights into the relative use of the two cues. The data indicated that, when directly stimulated with lenses or prisms, both accommodation and vergence responded, although inaccurately, with the frequencies and amplitudes of vergence responses being slightly larger than those of the accommodative responses across all ages tested ( Table 2, Figure 5, panel a). The mean accommodative response for the −2 D lens stimulus was 1.18 D ( SEM = 0.42 D) (a mean ...
Abstract: : Purpose: Suppression is the powerful defence mechanism against the unpleasant sensation of diplopia in cross eyedness. It can only be measured under binocular viewing conditions. In this study we objectify strabismic suppression by means of electrophysiological analysis. Through this experiment we also try to gain more insight into which cortical areas are involved in the process of suppression. Methods: Measurements were performed in 10 persons with either convergent or divergent strabismus and in 4 normal control persons. Under binocular viewing conditions, the subjects had a haploscopic view of 2 fusable identical contrastful images, through which 4 lights could be presented. Under monocular viewing conditions one eye was occluded and the lights were presented to the other eye. The stimulus lights had a sinusoidal luminance profile with a duration of 500 msec. With 8 surface electrodes on the posterior third of the skull (3 occipital, 3 parietal and 2 temporal) potentials were ...
Stereopsis (from the Greek στερεο- stereo- meaning solid, and ὄψις opsis, appearance, sight) is a term that is most often used to refer to the perception of depth and 3-dimensional structure obtained on the basis of visual information deriving from two eyes by individuals with normally developed binocular vision. Because the eyes of humans, and many animals, are located at different lateral positions on the head, binocular vision results in two slightly different images projected to the retinas of the eyes. The differences are mainly in the relative horizontal position of objects in the two images. These positional differences are referred to as horizontal disparities or, more generally, binocular disparities. Disparities are processed in the visual cortex of the brain to yield depth perception. While binocular disparities are naturally present when viewing a real 3-dimensional scene with two eyes, they can also be simulated by artificially presenting two different images ...
A system of lenses for presbyopia generally consists of a family of lenses designated for progressively higher add needs (i.e. LOW, MID, and HIGH add lenses) along with a fit guide that recommends how to select lenses. The lenses are often fit as disparate pairs to provide the best binocular vision over the range of visual conditions encountered. Therefore, design optimization requires a Binocular Vision Model (BV) that can predict the quality of vision for patients over a wide range of viewing distances and luminance levels. Vision is optimized by minimizing the equation shown nearby by changing the geometry of the contact lenses and the fit guide to best match the target binocular vision (TargetBV) over a wide range of luminance levels, viewing distance, patient ages, and patient sphere prescriptions.,br /, ,br /, The Binocular Vision Model allows prediction of the quality of vision by correlating properties of a Retinal Image Model with clinical visual response. The Retinal Image Model ...
Stereopsis is an important binocular cue to depth perception. Stereopsis cannot occur monocularly and is due to binocular retinal disparity within Panums fusional space. Stereopsis is the perception of depth produced by binocular retinal disparity. Therefore, two objects stimulates disparate (non-corresponding) retinal points within Panums fusional area.. Fusion describes the neural process that brings the retinal images in the two eyes to form one single image. Fusion occurs to allow single binocular vision. Fusion takes place when the objects are the same. When the objects are different, suppression, superimposition or binocular (retinal) rivalry may occurs. Suppression occurs to eliminate one image to prevent confusion. Superimposition results in one image presented on top of the other image. Binocular rivalry describes alternating suppression of the two eyes resulting in alternating perception of the two images. This usually occurs when lines are presented to the two eyes differ in ...

The endogenous neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) is known to affect the excitatory/inhibitory (E/I) balance of primate visual cortex, enhancing feedforward thalamocortical gain while suppressing corticocortical synapses. Recent advances in the study of the human visual system suggest that ACh is a likely component underlying interocular interactions. However, our understanding of its precise role in binocular processes is currently lacking. Here we use binocular rivalry as a probe of interocular dynamics to determine AChs effects, via the acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEI) donepezil, on the binocular visual system. A total of 23 subjects (13 male) completed two crossover experimental sessions where binocular rivalry measurements were obtained before and after taking either donepezil (5 mg) or a placebo (lactose) pill. We report that enhanced cholinergic potentiation attenuates perceptual suppression during binocular rivalry, reducing the overall rate of interocular competition while ...
In adults with previously good binocular vision, occlusion from associated ptosis may actually be beneficial by preventing incapacitating diplopia associated with a limited or absent field of single binocular vision; ptosis repair should not be done without prism adaptation testing to demonstrate that the patient can achieve satisfactory binocular vision with prism. The incidence of diplopia in patients younger than 8 years is low because of suppression (see Chapter 5).. Third nerve palsy presents difficult surgical challenges because multiple EOMs, including the levator muscle, are involved. Replacing all the lost rotational forces on the globe is impossible; therefore, the goal of surgery is adequate alignment for binocular function in primary position and in slight downgaze for reading.. Selection of the surgical procedure is dictated by the number of involved muscles and their condition, as well as by the presence or absence of noticeable paradoxical rotations. In a case of incomplete ...
Interocular differences in orientation occur during binocular viewing of a surface slanted in depth. These orientation disparities could be exploited by the visual system to provide information about surface slant, but gradients of positional disparity provide an equally effective means to the same end. We examined the encoding of orientation disparities in V1 neurons that were recorded from two awake fixating monkeys. Monocular orientation selectivity was measured separately in each eye. Although the preferred monocular orientation in the left and right eyes was highly correlated (r = 0.98), 19 of 61 cells showed a significant interocular difference in preferred orientation (IDPO). By itself, an IDPO does not imply a specific binocular selectivity for orientation differences. We therefore examined the response to 25 binocular combinations of orientations by pairing each of five orientations in one eye with five in the other. Forty-four of 64 neurons showed responses that reflected the monocular
Source localization was conducted in a manner similar to Zhang et al. (2011) with some slight differences. Phase alignment was used on the button-press timing in order to ensure the retention of the SSVEP activity, which oscillates at a fast rate and which would otherwise be smeared by differences in button-press timing. So, for each trial and for the occipital electrode, we searched in a window of 100 ms before and after the button press to find the peak (pi/2) of the oscillation and then shifted the button-press time such that the peak corresponded to t = 0 ms. We then took the mean of all of the aligned button presses for each of the two frequencies and then took the Hilbert transform of the final average time course for each electrode. We then took the real and imaginary components of the Hilbert transformed time course and input them into a minimum norm source localization algorithm to estimate the cortical sources of activity (Hämäläinen & Ilmoniemi, 1994). We specifically localized the ...
The switching of one image for another may involve selecting one of the images as the percept or selecting one of the eyes. Blake et al. (1979) performed an experiment in which subjects could change the image at a given eye by pressing a button. When a particular image became dominant they pressed a button to change the image at the eye receiving the dominant image for the non-dominant image. They found that the subjects immediately experienced the second image as the dominant image. This suggests that binocular rivalry is selecting between eyes rather than images. Lehky in 1988 proposed that the switching may be occurring as a result of feedback between visual cortical area V1 and the Lateral Geniculate Nucleus (a thalamic relay - see Carandini et al. 2002) and Blake in 1989 also proposed that the switching occurred at the level of area V1. (Visual cortical area V1 receives visual input direct from the LGN.). Tong (2001) has argued that, in humans, the switching of images in binocular rivalry ...

The same happens in our lives. We each have been daily given, as it were, a fresh, white piece of paper to observe and enjoy but we always seem to focus on the dark spots. Our lives are a gift from God and He chooses with love and care to bless us. We always have many reasons to celebrate-nature renewing itself everyday, our friends, the job that provides our livelihood, the miracles we see every day. However, we are preoccupied with our dark spot: the health issues that bother us, the lack of money or other provision, the complicated relationship with a family member, the disappointment with a friend. The dark spots are very small compared to all the other positives and blessings we have in such abundance, represented by the white space. But the negatives are what hold us down, occupy us, and consume our minds. ...

Press Release issued Aug 16, 2017: Shooting UK, an online site that publishes articles related to guns and shooting, has recently uploaded an article providing advice on eye dominance and shooting. The article states the difference between visual acuity and eye dominance. It says that visual acuity is the physical ability to focus on an object at various distances and under different conditions. On the other hand, eye dominance is all about how peoples eyes direct their pointing.
Visual development is considered as a neurobiological process, integrated into developing systems for cognition, action and attention. The onset in early months of selective processing of orientation, motion, color and binocular vision, and of selective oculomotor control, reflect the emergence of cortical visual systems that modulate and control earlier subcortical systems. The interacting development of acuity and optical focussing also reflects this neural development. Infants development of vernier acuity, figure-ground segmentation, face processing, 3D shape and depth perception is also reviewed. Analysis of global pattern and motion processing indicates the relative development of cortical dorsal and ventral streams, from early infancy through middle childhood, and reveals dorsal stream vulnerability in developmental disorders. Dorsal stream development includes specialised visuo-motor modules for eye movements, reaching and grasping, and locomotion, and these interact closely with the

Researchers are now calling for the preoperative evaluation of surgical patients seeking spectacle/contact lens independence to include a complete binocular and accommodation assessment after finding such issues could develop post-op. While they found corneal refractive surgery was not a relevant source of binocular/accommodative problems, most of the issues that arose after refractive and cataract surgery turned out to be preexisting conditions or dysfunctions. Thorough preoperative screening evaluations would help to identify dysfunctional eyes prone to destabilization after surgery that could potentially develop asthenopic symptoms.. The review included 95 works selected from 40 publications. A decrease in fusional vergence amplitude in near vision was the most frequently reported alteration. Other alterations were less common and were transient in most of the cases. The researchers suggested that, for binocular vision complaints, all treatment decisions must be postponed until at least three ...
Binocular stereo vision is a common passive ranging method, which directly simulates the approach of human visual. It can flexibly measure the stereo information in a complex condition. However there is a problem that binocular vision ranging accuracy is not high , one of the reasons is the low precision of the stereo image pairs matching . In this paper, based on trinocular vision imaging ranging algorithm of constraint matching, we use trinocular visual ranging system which is composed of three parallel placed cameras to image and achieve distance measurement of the target. we use calibration method of Zhang to calibrate the cameras, firstly, the three cameras are calibrated respectively, then using the results to get three groups binocular calibration. Thereby the relative position information of each camera are obtained. The using of the information obtained by the third camera can reduce ambiguity of corresponding points matching in a Binocular camera system. limiting search space by the ...

If you do, it may just be the price you pay for being open minded. Luke Smillie, a senior lecturer in psychology and director of the Personality Processes Lab at the University of Melbourne in Australia has been studying open-mindedness and traits that seem to relate to it. One such trait is called binocular rivalry. When different images are presented simultaneously to the left and right eye, the images usually flip back and forth in the minds eye, competing with each other for dominance. In an article in Scientific American, Smillie reports that he and colleagues found people with other traits for open mindedness often experience the mixed precept and hold it for a longer period of time.. It is as though the gates of perception are agape, allowing more visual information to flow into consciousness for open people,Smillie writes.. Smillie and colleagues also examined whether this sort of flexible duality also extends to mixed emotions-the simultaneous experience of opposing and apparently ...
Tawny owls are notably vocal. The most commonly known call is ke-WICK repeated shrilly, with frightening variations used as alarm or to display aggression. The song is mournful and ocarina-like, and is easily mimiced by blowing into ones hands. It begins with a long drawn-out note falling in pitch, followed by a short pause and a series of quick, shivering notes, to end with another falling note: HOOOOuh.......ho, hohohoHOOOOOOuh. The female exhibits a hoarse and wailing version of this song. The call used in mating is called the xylophone trill: oooooooo and it used by both sexes. Young owls beg for food by squeaking: PSEE-ep. (Svensson and Zetterström, 1999). Tawny owl eyes are at the front of the head, with a field overlap of 50 to 70%. This overlap enables greater binocular vision than birds that hunt during the day. The increased visual acuity of the owl, while not much greater than that in humans, is due to optical factors such as the shape and size of the eye ...

  • The 1x GEN 2 Iris 221 Night Vision Binocular from Night Optics features a Generation 2 night vision dual tube design with a resolution of 28 - 38 lp/mm and automatic brightness control. (
  • Designed for extended reach night-time observation, surveillance and perimeter security the Discovery Night vision binocular utilizes a suite of high-performance 3x, 5x and 8x lenses, up-to 72 lp/mm resolution Gen 2 or Gen 3 image intensifier tube availability, on-board infrared illuminator and photo-sensor based Bright-Light system cut-off switch. (
  • The BOXER system (model PI-05) is the Night Vision Binocular that offers image intensified night vision with high resolution in a lightweight single-tube and binocular configuration. (
  • These are designed to test for any imbalance in binocular vision, such as a 'lazy eye', or a strabismus, or squint. (
  • The present study aims to assess monocular and binocular CSFs in amblyopia and strabismus patients. (
  • Binocular contrast summation exceeded probability summation in controls, but not in subjects with amblyopia (with or without strabismus) or strabismus without amblyopia who were able to fuse at the test distance. (
  • We conclude that monocular and binocular contrast sensitivity deficits define important characteristics of amblyopia and strabismus that are not captured by visual acuity alone and can be measured efficiently using the quick CSF. (
  • We evaluate whether strabismus surgery influences the association of injuries in elderly patients with disorders of binocular vision in a 5% random sample of Medicare fee-for-service claims data from 2010 to 2013. (
  • Tipically, the binocular vision don't evolved if somebody has squint , ( inward strabismus , out strabismus ), lazy eye, latent squint (alternate squint) or amblyopia . (
  • A common cause of binocular double vision is a squint or strabismus. (
  • [1] The inability of an eye to turn outward and results in a convergent strabismus or esotropia of which the primary symptom is diplopia (commonly known as double vision) in which the two images appear side-by-side. (
  • The two most common binocular vision disorders are strabismus (crossed eyes) and amblyopia (lazy eye). (
  • Symptoms of strabismus include double vision, crossed eyes, eyes which are not aligned, independent eye movements, and loss of depth perception. (
  • Abnormal retinal correspondence (ARC), also called Anomalous retinal correspondence is binocular sensory adaptation to compensate for a long-standing eye deviation (i.e. strabismus). (
  • To develop a treatment for amblyopia based on re-establishing binocular vision. (
  • This provides the basis for a new treatment of amblyopia, one that is purely binocular and aimed at reducing suppression as a first step. (
  • Coverage includes the most common non-strabismic binocular vision disorders, including accommodative and eye movement disorders as well as amblyopia. (
  • Recent approaches to the treatment of amblyopia place renewed emphasis on binocular vision and inter-ocular suppression. (
  • The addition of comprehensive binocular vision tests to a clinical examination is feasible and may assist in the personalized management of amblyopia. (
  • BLOO is the new, non-invasive, binocular training for lazy eye (amblyopia). (
  • Amblyopia affects the spatial vision of one or both eyes in the absence of an obvious organic cause and is associated with a history of abnormal visual experience during development ( The Lasker/IRRF Initiative for Innovation in Vision Science, 2018 ). (
  • Despite recognition of its binocular origin, treatment of amblyopia continues to be dominated by a period of patching of the non-amblyopic eye that necessarily hinders binocular co-operation. (
  • This review summarizes evidence from three lines of investigation conducted on an animal model of deprivation amblyopia to support the thesis that treatment of amblyopia should instead focus upon procedures that promote and enhance binocular co-operation. (
  • Amblyopia, the most common childhood vision problem, is the loss of one eye's ability to see details, when the nerve path connecting the eye to the brain does not develop. (
  • This includes hikers, backpackers, general wildlife … The condition can happen in both eyes (binocular diplopia) or just one (monocular diplopia). (
  • Double vision, or diplopia, is a symptom to take seriously. (
  • Double vision, or diplopia, can result from a range of underlying conditions. (
  • Patients sometimes adopt a face turned towards the side of the affected eye, moving the eye away from the field of action of the affected lateral rectus muscle, with the aim of controlling diplopia and maintaining binocular vision. (
  • We tested 53 adults with normal vision using a relative disparity detection task. (
  • The human visual system can make depth judgements using binocular disparity ( Wheatstone, 1838 ). (
  • Two viewing conditions were compared: binocular vision with null disparity (same image projected to the two eyes) and monocular vision. (
  • Full perceptual constancy was found for simulated stationary surfaces under monocular vision, but not under binocular vision with null disparity. (
  • Binocular vision with null disparity (1) disrupts the effect of extra-retinal signals produced by head movement, and (2) induces the perception of an apparent rotation counter to the heading direction. (
  • binocular disparity and convergence are the primary factors. (
  • There are two kinds of binocular cues: retinal disparity and convergence. (
  • Recently a team of researchers from the University of Rochester, led by Greg DeAngelis, have fleshed out yet another mechanism of depth perception independent of binocular disparity (published this week in the journal Nature). (
  • Then, an optometrist colleague, Dr. Jeff Krall from Mitchell, South Dakota, who understood the disparity between central and peripheral vision, put a contoured prism in their glasses and their pain went away. (
  • Binocular disparity refers to the difference in image location of an object seen by the left and right eyes, resulting from the eyes' horizontal separation (parallax). (
  • The brain uses binocular disparity to extract depth information from the two-dimensional retinal images in stereopsis. (
  • In computer vision, binocular disparity refers to the difference in coordinates of similar features within two stereo images. (
  • The binocular disparity can be observed from apparent horizontal shift of the vertical edge between both views. (
  • Visual binocular disparity is defined as the difference between the point of projection in the two eyes and is usually expressed in degrees as the visual angle. (
  • The term "binocular disparity" refers to geometric measurements made external to the eye. (
  • Disparity on retina conforms to binocular disparity when measured as degrees, while much different if measured as distance due to the complicated structure inside eye. (
  • In computer vision, binocular disparity is calculated from stereo images taken from a set of stereo cameras. (

  • Here we use binocular rivalry as a probe of interocular dynamics to determine ACh's effects, via the acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEI) donepezil, on the binocular visual system. (
  • A total of 23 subjects (13 male) completed two crossover experimental sessions where binocular rivalry measurements were obtained before and after taking either donepezil (5 mg) or a placebo (lactose) pill. (
  • We report that enhanced cholinergic potentiation attenuates perceptual suppression during binocular rivalry, reducing the overall rate of interocular competition while enhancing the visibility of superimposition mixed percepts. (
  • Considering recent evidence that perceptual suppression during binocular rivalry is causally modulated by the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, our results suggest that cholinergic activity counteracts the effect of GABA with regards to interocular dynamics and may modulate the inhibitory drive within the visual cortex. (
  • Here we investigate whether auditory and tactile stimuli can influence binocular rivalry generated by interocular temporal conflict in human subjects. (
  • Auditory and tactile stimulation both interacted with binocular rivalry by promoting dominance of the congruent visual stimulus. (
  • However, when auditory and tactile stimuli that were too weak on their own to bias binocular rivalry were combined, their influence over vision was very strong, suggesting the auditory and tactile temporal signals combined to influence vision. (
  • Normal binocular rivalry in autism: implications for the excitation/inhibition imbalance hypothesis. (
  • We conducted two experiments on binocular rivalry, a well-studied psychophysical phenomenon that depends critically on excitation and inhibition levels in cortex. (

  • Ingestion of ayahuasca increased mean dominance periods both in standard binocular rivalry conditions (no DSA) and tests with DSA. (
  • It is discussed that ayahuasca-induced survival of binocular rivalry at high DSA rates may be related to slow visual processing and increased mean dominance periods may result from hallucinogen-induced alteration of gamma oscillations in the visual pathways. (

  • Yet when this binocular vision disorder is left untreated, it can lead to extreme visual disability. (
  • This is often mistaken to be an attention disorder as the person themselves are often unaware that there is something unusual about their vision. (
  • Monocular and binocular vision each serve a unique purpose. (
  • Monocular and binocular vision both depend on the brain's ability to process the images coming in. (
  • Both monocular and binocular vision have evolved among different species. (
  • Monocular and binocular vision are not the most common forms of vision among animals, however. (
  • Normal binocular single vision occurs with bifoveal fixation and normal retinal correspondence in everyday sight. (
  • Normal binocular single vision results due to the presence of bifoveal fixation and normal retinal correspondence and vice versa. (
  • Historically, there are two schools of thought with regard to the origin and development of normal binocular vision and spatial orientation. (
  • First, experiments with mixed daily visual experience in which episodes of abnormal visual input were pitted against normal binocular exposure revealed that short exposures of the latter offset much longer periods of abnormal input to allow normal development of visual acuity in both eyes. (
  • To determine the symptoms associated with accommodative and non-strabismic binocular dysfunctions and to assess the methods used to obtain the subjects' symptoms. (
  • We conducted a scoping review of articles published between 1988 and 2012 that analysed any aspect of the symptomatology associated with accommodative and non-strabismic binocular dysfunctions. (
  • When auditory and tactile stimuli were presented at maximum strength, but in antiphase, they had no influence over vision for low temporal frequencies, a null effect again suggesting audio-tactile combination. (
  • Furthermore we show that prolonged periods of binocular combination leads to a strengthening of binocular vision in strabismic amblyopes and eventual combination of binocular information under natural viewing conditions (stimuli of the same contrast in each eye). (
  • These binocular cells have one receptive field for left eye stimuli and another receptive field for right eye stimuli. (
  • We tested this theory in the visual system, because vision is one of the better understood systems in neuroscience, and because the E/I imbalance theory has been proposed to explain hypersensitivity to sensory stimuli in autism. (
  • We hypothesize that suppression renders a structurally binocular system, functionally monocular. (
  • Concomitant improvement in monocular acuity of the amblyopic eye occurs with this reduction in suppression and strengthening of binocular fusion. (
  • We have developed a range of novel tests that evaluate binocular vision quantifying spatial frequency-dependent contrast sensitivity, inter-ocular suppression, stereo-acuity and visual distortion. (

  • Several test methods and test instrumentalities for demonstrating, detecting and measuring defects of spatial localization as affected by the various factors affecting binocular vision based on the above-mentioned investigations and more useful than the conventional tests, have been proposed by, or in collaboration with the present inventor. (
  • The so-called Tipping Field test (U. S. Patent No. 2,168,308) furnishes direct information concerning binocular spatial localization, permits a certain evaluation of the efiect of uniocular and binocular factors upon binocular spatial localization, and also permits fairly exact detection and measurement of image incongruities through peculiar control of that mutual effect. (
  • On the other hand, this test, although it works with three dimensional test objects, emphasizes two dimensions of these objects so that it does not always fully represent the conditions under which binocular spatial localization actually operates. (
  • The test methods exemplified by the so-called Leaf Room test (copending application Serial No. 334,511, filed May 11, 1940), although able to demonstrate the effect on spatial localizationof ocular image incongruities and to detect them under conditions very closely reproducing binocular vision in natural environments, does not lend itself to exact differentiation or measurement of basic types of anomalous spatial localization. (
  • Additionally, these methods are relatively insensitive to gradual changes in vision or its dependence on spatial scale. (
  • Since both eyes are used, as compared to the one-eyed observation with a monocular, binoculars have a much broader field of vision and project a spatial 3-dimensional image. (

  • With one eye's vision magnified and the other not, your eyes will quickly grow tired when looking through a monocular. (
  • Binocular vision requires two well aligned, well seeing eyes. (
  • Sometimes the muscles controlling the eyes have difficulty accomplishing that, leading to double vision. (
  • It was probably inevitable that this would lead to vision problems, because when the eye muscles and brain have to maintain a near focus for a long time, we can experience everything from headaches to dry eyes to shoulder and neck pain. (
  • Since the eyes are not working together to create binocular vision, the brain receives two independent visual images. (
  • When looking at near objects, both eyes should turn inwards and maintain single vision. (

  • A patent application submitted in 1854 by Ignatio Porro began the use of the modern prism binocular called the Porro prism erecting system. (
  • With the exception of the optical glass and some rubber seals, the majority of binocular component parts can be manufactured using a Computer Assisted Design and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system that downloads the designs to a variety of Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) devices (multi-axis mill turn and milling machines as well as vertical and horizontal machining centers, lathes, etc. (
  • These are quick, take less than 5 minutes each, and simple tests to administer, yet show high sensitivity and reliability.Outcome binocular vision test scores are correlated with standard monocular measurement outcomes and treatment effect sizes, but reveal persistent binocular deficits that would not otherwise be captured by monocular outcomes. (
  • On the other hand, the contrast sensitivity function (CSF) generally takes longer to assess than visual acuity, but it is better correlated with improvement in a range of visual tasks and, notably, with improvements in binocular vision. (
  • Binocular vision problems should not frighten optometrists-many of these conditions are relatively easy to diagnose and manage. (
  • Monocular double vision occurs due to a problem with one eye and is less common than binocular double vision. (
  • Acquired monocular vision occurs when an animal with binocular vision loses vision in one eye. (
  • Double vision occurs when a person sees a double image where there should only be one. (
  • While it's essential that everyone has routine eye examinations, many of the conditions that interrupt regular binocular vision begin to occur quite early in life, so it's crucial that parents and teachers are observing their children for anything out of the ordinary. (
  • Dr. Turville described this phenomenon in the 1950s and developed the Turville Ophthalmometer for measuring the imbalance between central and peripheral binocular vision. (
  • It was like seven binocular glasses rolled into one telescope. (
  • Monoculars can be seen as a combination of telescope and a binocular. (
  • When most people hear the word 'binocular' they envision a compact, hand-held, two eyepiece telescope used to watch birds, or whales or whatever. (
  • This center of the Pediatrics and Binocular Vision Service provides evaluation and treatment for children from infancy through 10 years of age, who are having difficulty learning letters, difficulty learning how to read or understand math, or learning difficulties in the classroom. (
  • The response to treatment is generally assessed using visual acuity, which is an insensitive measure of visual function and may, therefore, underestimate binocular vision gains in these patients. (
  • When our Belmont optometrist diagnoses it early enough, we will start treatment immediately to prevent reduced vision. (
  • This article will look at the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of double vision. (
  • In some cases, the treatment of a squint can actually cause double vision, despite the individual's vision being normal before the squint was treated. (
  • Has fewer headaches, less double vision and wants to read! (
  • 2018). The effect of image position on the Independent Components of natural binocular images . (
  • Some monoculars are no larger than your … What is monocular vision impairment? (
  • Dr. Khanna is also a voluntary member of the UCLA faculty and is an Internationally recognized top Lasik, presbyopic implants in the eye (PIE), and Refractive vision care specialist. (
  • and binocular vision problems associated with refractive surgery. (
  • Establishment of normal vision by refractive adaptation (wearing glasses after presentation). (
  • The objective of this study is to assess the visual outcome after the combined binocular implantation of +2.0 D and +3.0 D refractive multifocal intraocular lenses. (
  • Impairment of binocular vision in the adult cat induces plastic changes in the callosal cortical map. (
  • Lesions of the brain preventing the establishment of good vision (e.g. cortical visual impairment). (
  • Taking these movements into account, she found that the binocular overlaps of the scalloped hammerhead and bonnethead increase to a substantial 69 and 52 degrees respectively, still outclassing the 44 and 48 degree arcs of the pointy-headed species. (
  • The information contained in the signal from each eye is slightly different and with well-functioning binocular vision, the brain is able to use these differences to judge distances and coordinate eye movements. (
  • Double vision. (
  • This allows the lens to move around and get out of place, resulting in double vision. (
  • As a result, your child may experience double vision or blurriness. (
  • The brain learns to adapt and ignores the information from one eye in order to avoid double vision. (
  • Alternatively, the brain may attempt to process both sets of information, causing double vision. (
  • If you are experiencing eye trouble that is compromising your standard of living, talk to your Raleigh eye doctor about double vision and vertigo today. (
  • When properly adjusted and fitted, prisms can effectively displace the image that one eye sees so that it matches up perfectly with the other eye and you no longer suffer from double vision or the other issues of BVD. (
  • If double vision affects just one eye, it is monocular. (
  • Here are some key points about double vision. (
  • A childhood squint, or eye turn, can sometimes recur and cause double vision. (
  • Temporary double vision can be caused by alcohol or other recreational drugs. (
  • Nerve or muscle damage in the eye might cause double vision. (
  • However, the condition does not always result in double vision. (
  • This can affect the blood vessels supplying the brain or nerves controlling the eye muscles and cause double vision. (
  • If double vision is noted when one eye is covered but not the other, this is referred to as monocular double vision . (
  • Monocular double vision is less common than binocular double vision. (
  • It works using the idea of "normal" double vision. (
  • In this study we have explored binocular strategies during reading and visual search tasks in a large population of dyslexic and typical readers. (
