Detection of Moving Stimuli in the Binocular and Nasal Visual Fields by Infants Three and Four Months Old Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A technique of monocular eye patching was used to measure the response of infants three and four months old to nasally and temporally placed stimuli at various eccentricities in the visual field. The results indicated a field of field of binocular overlap of approximately 60 deg in infants three months old and 80 deg in infants four months old. These figures compare with visual field widths obtained under binocular viewing conditions of at least 140 deg in infants three months old and of at least 150 deg in infants four months old.
