Abstract:

The primary objective of this research program was to determine the degree of congruence between the apparent or perceived depth position of a stereoscopic form and the position predictable from the physical conditions of stimulation. This topic, which bears directly on the veridicality or validity of depth information presented in a stereoscopic or 3-d display, has been investigated previously under restrict ed laboratory conditions that yield results of limited generality. For that reason, the present inquiry was pursued under naturalistic conditions similar to those that would obtain during the routine operation of visual displays. To gain insights into potential interactions between depth position X-axis and stimulus configuration X- and Y-axes, stereoscopic forms were created from dynamic random element stereograms continuously generated electronically. This approach precluded the occurrence of non-stereoscopic cues that can arise in conventional depth displays. Keywords afterimages stereopsis visual space perception.
