Abstract : The report describes ongoing work on certain factors that affect depth perception. Research has been directed to a study of the relation between depth and disparity, and to obvious individual differences in these relations. This work has led to the discovery that a sizeable portion of the population is 'stereoblind': many individuals are unable to utilize fully all available disparity cues. The character of these deficits suggests a new basis for depth perception. (Author)
