Abstract

How information from both eyes aligns in the primary visual cortex (V1) depends on the vergence of the eyes and the depth of a given object, resulting in a particular binocular disparity. However, a significant fraction of V1 neurons are binocular but not modulated by binocular disparity, raising the question of how their outputs can be meaningful.
