Depth Perception

You will need two pencils or pens for this assignment.

Hold a pencil or pen in each hand at arms length in front of your face. While closing one eye, touch the tips (e.g., erasers of pencils) together (pencils can be held horizontally—end to end, or vertically—one above the other.) Next open both eyes and repeat the activity.

For your paper, using your text as a resource, discuss the difference between monocular and binocular vision for depth perception. Answer the following questions, in essay form (do not list the questions and answer beneath–write an essay).

1. What is the nature of Monocular depth cues? What is the nature of Binocular depth cues? List them all and explain them.

2. When conducting the pencil/pen experiment, what were the cues used for the monocular part of the test? What were the cues used for the binocular part of the test. Which worked better for you? How successful were you? Did practice make a difference in your success in the tasks?

3. How does this experiment relate to the chapter in your textbook on Depth perception? What is the neural processes that permit both types of depth perception–how does the brain interpret the visual input?

4. Draw conclusions.
