A primer on binocular rivalry, including current controversies.
Differences between binocular rivalry and ambiguous figures.
stimuli influences the dominant time of binocular rivalry.
When the differences of the projections are too large, a phenomenon of binocular rivalry (BR) occurs.
The phenomenon of binocular rivalry is widely used in perception research--for investigating the influence of adaptation on perception , the interaction of different sensations , the role of heredity in perception  etc.
These interocular differences are normally distributed in the population, as it is common with eye-dominance measures based on binocular rivalry (Ooi, Optom, and He, 2001), and are correlated with sighting-dominance scores obtained with a version of Miles' test.
The complete suppression of a monocular input under dichoptic viewing conditions has been described with single presentation of target and mask (dichoptic masking, see Breitmeyer, 1984, for a review, and Michaels and Turvey, 1979), during binocular rivalry (see the review by Blake and Logothetis, 2002), flash suppression (Wolfe, 1984), and more recently in the continuous flash suppression technique (Tsuchiya and Koch, 2005).
The principle of using binocular rivalry to detect differences between stereo images has been anecdotally reported by aerial photo interpreters but has not been previously measured.
As a direct test of binocular rivalry in inspection, an experiment was run to test stereo viewing (both types) against nonstereo viewing to determine whether stereo viewing led to improved defect detection performance and whether it removed or reduced the effect of inspecting for multiple fault or target types.
One of the advantages of the binocular rivalry test is that it is much less influenced by these factors.
Included patients were under 16 years of age, had delusions as their primary symptoms, were right-handed, did not have other mental or serious physical illnesses, and were able to complete the binocular rivalry test.
