SESSION 12 . . . . . . .Thurs. 4:30 to 5:30 pm
Keynote Presentation

Understanding Stereoscopic Vision (Keynote Address),
Professor Ian Howard, Centre for Vision Research, York University (Canada). [5006-51]

The study of binocular vision goes back to Euclid in the 3rd century BC and Ptolemy in the 2nd century AD. The study of stereoscopic vision started when Charles Wheatstone invented the stereoscope in 1836. In 1967 Barlow, Blakemore and Pettigrew discovered brain cells sensitive to binocular disparity. This talk will review the landmarks in the physiological and psychophysical study of stereoscopic vision as well as reviewing some recent developments in understanding stereoscopic vision.

Ian Howard is Emeritus Professor of Psychology and Founding Director of the Centre for Vision Research at York University, Toronto, Canada. Professor Howard has been researching human vision since 1953 and received his PhD from Durham University in experimental psychology in 1966. During his long career, he has authored or co-authored over 100 journal and conference papers, 22 book chapters and 5 books. Professor Howard has recently completed the two volume book 'Seeing in Depth' - co-authored with Brian J. Rogers of Oxford - a sequel to their 1995 book 'Binocular Vision and Stereopsis'.
