Perceiving in Depth: Volume 3 Other Mechanisms of Depth Perception

Ian P. Howard


This volume deals with all depth-perception mechanisms other than stereoscopic vision. It first deals with the visual depth cues of accommodation, vergence eye movements, perspective, interposition, shading, and motion parallax. Ways in which depth cues interact are discussed. These interactions improve discrimination of depth intervals and motion in depth. They also allow us to perceive constancy of size, shape, and relative depth. Pathologies of visual depth perception are described, including visual neglect, and albinism. An account is given of how visual information is used to guide moveme ... More

Keywords: depth perception, perspective, motion parallax, cue interactions, constancies, motion in depth, echolocation, electrolocation, animal navigation
