    Suzanne P McKee
    Smith Kettlewell Eye Research Institute, San Francisco, CA 94115, USA
    J Vis 5:783-92. 2005
    ..We found that the rise in grating thresholds with increasing edge disparity was monotonic and virtually identical to the rise in thresholds observed for bars. Stereoacuity is contingent on stereo matching...

    Suzanne P McKee
    Smith Kettlewell Eye Research Institute, San Francisco, CA, USA
    J Vis 4:524-38. 2004

    Smith Kettlewell Eye Research Institute, San Francisco, CA 94115, USA
