Similar stimuli falling on corresponding points on the two retinas fuse to create the impression of one image. This chapter starts with a discussion of stimulus features, such as contrast, color, and orientation that affect binocular fusion. Dissimilar images falling on corresponding points rival for access to the visual system. The rate of binocular rivalry and the spatial extent over which one image suppresses another image depend on factors such as the relative contrast, color, and movement of the images. Under certain circumstances, a suppressed image can influence an effect produced by the dominant image. These issues are discussed, and the chapter ends with a review of the physiology of binocular rivalry and theoretical models of rivalry.
