A cyclopean neural mechanism compensating for optical differences between the eyes, published in Current Biology

Marzo_04

Eyes suffer from optical aberration that blur the images proyected on the retina, although we generally don’t perceive them as blurred because the visual system recalibrates itself. In this stidy we found that when each eye has a different level of blur our brain uses as a reference the retinal image quality of the eye with better optics. In fact, the perceived best focus measured by each eye independently is identical in both eyes, even if interocular differences in the optics occur, and matches the optical blur of the better eye.

The study has been published in the high impact journal Current Biology Aiswaryah Radhakrishnan, Carlos Dorronsoro, Lucie Sawides, Michael A. Webster, Susana Marcos. Acyclopean neural mechanism compensating for optical differences between the eyes. Current Biology.
