Human cortical activity correlates with stereoscopic depth perception.

Abstract:

Stereoscopic depth perception is based on binocular disparities. Although neurons in primary visual cortex (V1) are selective for binocular disparity, their responses do not explicitly code perceived depth. The stereoscopic pathway must therefore include additional processing beyond V1. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine stereo processing in V1 and other areas of visual cortex. We created stereoscopic stimuli that portrayed two planes of dots in depth, placed symm...
