Our ability to coordinate the use of our left and right eyes and to make use of subtle differences between the images received by each eye allows us to perceive stereoscopic depth, which is important for the visual perception of three-dimensional space. Binocular neurons in the visual cortex combine signals from the left and right eyes. Probing the roles of binocular neurons in different perceptual tasks has advanced our understanding of the stages within the visual cortex that lead to binocular depth perception.
