Abstract : An investigation was made to explore the nature of learning, transfer, and forgetting in the visual perception of depth. Numerous preliminary experiments were conducted in order to find a situation in which the occurrence of perceptual learning could be convincingly demonstrated and cogently studied. The experiments that were finally selected for major emphasis dealt with stereoscopic depth perception (retinal disparity), and the kinetic depth effect, i. e., the cues that are due to rotation of a three-dimensional object or the observer's locomotion around the object.
