This chapter discusses the ways in which images into the eyes facilitate or suppress each other. Under certain circumstances, binocular images are perceived more readily and appear brighter than monocular images. Under other circumstances, superimposed, neighbouring, or successively presented binocular images engage in mutual suppression. The chapter also deals with interocular transfer. A visual phenomenon shows interocular transfer when an aftereffect generated by presenting a stimulus to one eye shows when only the other eye is open. The study of interocular transfer reveals how and, to some extent, where inputs from the two eyes are combined.

Keywords:   vision, binocular images, interocular transfer, human eyes
