Pulfrich stereoeffect during tracking eye movements

An experiment was conducted to compare the magnitudes of the Pulfrich stereoeffect under two viewing conditions: fixating a stationary point and tracking a moving target. Three different transmittances of ND filters were used for each condition. The null method was employed to estimate the magnitude of the stereoeffect, in which the apparent depth was "nulled" by adjusting the physical depth of the target moving in an elliptical path in the eye-level horizontal plane so that no depth was seen. The results obtained from two experienced subjects showed that: the stereoeffect increased as the transmittance of the filter was decreased, and the stereoeffect was larger in the tracking condition than in the fixating condition for all three transmittances of the filters. The results were discussed within the context of depth information available for the visual system.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
