Binocular Vision and Ocular Motility (VS21203)

This course presents elements of binocular vision and ocular motility. Binocular vision topics include oculocentric and egocentric localization, binocular correspondence and the horopter, fusion and Panum’s areas, binocular rivalry and suppression, depth cues and stereopsis, stereoacuity, and the pathophysiological aspects of strabismus, amblyopia, and stereoblindness. The ocular motility material includes principles of saccadic, pursuit, vestibular, optokinetic, vergence, and accommodative movements and addresses the anatomical, kinematic, physiological, cybernetic, and pathophysiological properties of ocular motility. Laboratory sessions support the lecture material with hands-on experiments.
