Summary of research

Binocular rivalry can occur when dissimilar images are presented separately to each eye. Previous studies investigated binocular rivalry using stimuli which are detectable due to variations of luminance between stimulus and background (luminance-modulated stimuli). However, stimuli, which do not differ in luminance from the background but in contrast (contrast-modulated stimuli), have not been used to investigate binocular rivalry. The Ph.D. project aims to close this gap of knowledge.
