THE present work was undertaken in an attempt to throw further light on the subject of depth perception as it is related to aviation. A considerable amount has been written on the theoretic and laboratory aspects of this subject, but articles giving clinical analyses of cases have been few. An interesting series of cases was published by Howard in 1919.1 That author described in detail the apparatus he used for the testing of depth perception and then presented a series of cases with a careful analysis and discussion of the results. It is felt that further clinical surveys are indicated in an effort to extend knowledge of the significance which can be attached to results obtained from tests of depth perception.
