Abstract

To investigate the spatial and temporal frequency tunings for stereopsis, we measured the contrast sensitivity for depth discrimination with variable spatiotemporal frequencies and disparities using drifting sinusoidal gratings. The results showed that the contrast sensitivity changed with the stimulus disparity and the disparity tuning function varied with the spatial frequency. The disparity in the peak sensitivity decreased proportionally with the spatial frequency (size-disparity correlation). Although the temporal frequency exhibited a limited influence on the peak disparity, the temporal frequency tuning varied with the spatial frequency. The shape of the temporal frequency tuning function was lowpass for higher spatial frequencies, whereas it was bandpass for low spatial frequencies. These results suggest that more than one channel with different temporal as well as spatial frequency tunings contribute to stereopsis.
