  • What are the key differences between stereopsis and binocular depth perception? What is the binocular theory of stereopsis?
  • How does parallax affect vision and depth perception?
  • How did the results of the three experiments support the idea that stereopsis can be induced in the absence of binocular disparity or visual parallax?
  • How would you describe monocular stereopsis?
