Perceptual Learning and Stereo Vision Recovery with Virtual Reality
Impaired stereoscopic depth perception is one of the most common deficits associated with degraded vision. This summer, I will be assisting my research mentor in developing a stereo training program using Oculus Quest 2 and Vivid Vision to extensively track how human subjects with amblyopia improve in stereo vision. I am excited to conduct the 3D-recovery training, administer psychophysical tests, and analyze data. Our goal is to also understand whether amblyopes’ poor stereopsis is due to reduced disparity gain or increased internal disparity noise.
