One eye knows what the other eye sees...
or: Intra- and interocular
colour-specific activation during dichoptic suppression (Van
Lier & De Weert, 2003)
A new psychophysical method, based on dichoptic
is introduced to study intra- and interocular colour activations. An
experiment shows that activation of a specific colour in one eye may
cancel suppression of the same colour in the ipsi-lateral eye or in the
contra-lateral eye at non-corresponding retinal locations.A control
experiment shows that the effect is not due to an overall response bias
to the activated colour.
The colour-specific intra- and interocular activation
play a role in various colour-based percepts known in the literature.
