The Pulfrich effect: filtering portions of both eyes

The Journal of Psychology
D T Landrigan, I A Bader


This study investigated apparent depth and pattern using four conditions of hemiretinal filtering with 19 male and five female college-student SS. The results for both the depth and pattern of pendulum movement challenge the adequacy of the long-standing latency hypothesis. Apparent depth occurred without simultaneous stimulation disparity and smooth figure-8 patterns resulted only when the stimulation disparity was induced for both cortical hemispheres. The findings suggest independence of depth and pattern processing in the central nervous system and underscore the importance of viewing perception as an active constructive process.

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.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
