Abstract

THE apparent alteration in the size and shape and spatial relation of objects when right-eye and left-eye viewings are interchanged (or in other way the binocular parallax is reversed) may prove to some degree dependent on retinal structure, as suggested by Mr. Cox1, but considerable alterations of like character are certainly accounted for by peculiar geometrical conditions, in conjunction with extreme quickness of the eyes and mind to interpret these as normally as possible.
