As the title indicates, this volume is not a textbook of the physiology of binocular vision and spatial orientation. Its intent is not to cover the subject fully or to give a didactic presentation for beginners. Its aim is a detailed discussion of those aspects of binocular vision which have claimed the interest of the group of workers connected with the Dartmouth Eye Institute.

The book is divided into four parts. In the first part the methods of determining and evaluating the empirical longitudinal horopter are discussed. In the second part the fusional processes are considered. This section deals largely with the phenomena of sensory fusion; motor fusion is taken into account mainly in connection with the role of peripheral fusional stimuli in producing vertical fusional movements and in connection with a report of some investigations on cyclofusional movements.

The third and fourth parts of the book deal with aniseikonia
