Abstract : Two experiments were carried out to determine the functional relation between the critical flicker frequency (CFF) of two identical intermittent targets, binocularly superimposed, and the phase difference between the targets. Binocular CFF is a monotonic decreasing function of phase difference, positively accelerated for phase differences between 0 and 180 degrees, and negatively accelerated for phase differences between 360 and 180 degrees. It is postulated that the results can be accounted for by assuming the existence of something akin to the 'isodynamic' cells of Cajal, and that more weight is attached to the input to these cells from one eye than from the other.
