Integration of depth modules: stereopsis and texture.
Johnston EB., Cumming BG., Parker AJ.
Global shape judgements were employed to examine the combination of stereopsis and shape-from-texture in the determination of three-dimensional shape. Adding textural variations to stereograms increased perceived depth. Thus, texture was not simply vetoed by the strong stereo cue. In experiments where the depth specified by texture was incongruent with that specified by stereo, the data were well described by a weighted linear combination rule. Although only a small weight was assigned to texture, this weight was somewhat greater at a farther viewing distance. This could be a consequence of the decreased reliability of stereopsis at far viewing distances.
