Abstract

The fading of a stabilized retinal image in the sighting and the nonsighting dominant eye was studied using the Haidinger's brush target. Reaction time to the complete disappearance of the stabilized image was significantly longer when the target was input to the sighting eye. The greater persistence of stabilized targets in the sighting eye suggests possible differences in the neural channels from the two eyes or processing differences in the two monocular channels that are related behaviorally to eye dominance.
