What is Binocular Rivalry?
Binocular rivalry is a phenomenon of visual perception in which perception alternates between different images presented to each eye.
From the moment we open our eyes, we receive two slightly dissimilar images of the world. This study is to help us learn how your two eyes see together and how your brain filters out information that you don’t need to pay attention to in your environment
