Presentation Description :
The binocular visual system combines the retinal images from the two eyes into one fused cyclopean percept. The retinal images often different significantly due to binocular disparity and differential blur due to different aberrations in the two eyes. In addition, the images may contain substantial blur due to depth of field effects. Nonetheless, the fused percept generally seems to be sharp and single. I will discuss how the brain is nonetheless able to construct an apparently single, sharp percept from these inputs. I will also discuss how the binocular fusion process can potentially be leveraged to produce a wider gamut of color and luminance appearances than is possible from monocular inputs alone.
