Control of Vision
Ongoing research in the Schiller laboratory on
the visual system is engaged in two major projects: Visual prosthetics,
which is described in Section 3 (add link), and depth perception, which
is described here. The research on depth perception is carried out both
in humans and monkeys. We examine the following questions:
How effectively are the various depth cues,
which include stereopsis, motion parallax and shading, processed and
Which visual areas are involved in the processing
of stereopsis, motion parallax and shading?
How does brain organization differ in intact
and stereo blind subjects?
To answer these questions we use three methods:
psychophysics, fMRI brain imaging and single-cell recordings. In this
section we provide a brief description of the psychophysical and brain
