Paper Abstract

The cyclopean paradigm introduced by Bela Julesz remains one of the richest probes into the neural organization of sensory processing, by virtue of both its specificity for purely stereoscopic form and the sophistication of the processing required to retrieve it. The introduction of the sinusoidal stereograting showed that the perceptual limitations of human depth processing are very different from those for monocular form. Their use has also revealed the existence of hypercyclopean form channels selective for specific aspects of the monocularly invisible depth form. The natural extension of stereogratings to patches of stereoGabor ripple has allowed the measurement of the summation properties for depth structure, which is specific for narrow horizontal bars in depth. Consideration of the apparent motion between two cyclopean depth structures reveals the existence of a novel surface correspondence problem operating for cyclopean surfaces over time after the binocular correspondence has been solved. Such concepts imply that remains to be discovered about cyclopean stereopsis and its relationship to 3D form perception from other depth cues.
