The onset of binocular function in human infants.
Braddick O., Wattam-Bell J., Day J., Atkinson J.
Visual evoked potentials (VEP) elicited by a dynamic random-dot correlogram were used to assess the development of cortical binocular function in infant subjects. In a group of newborn infants who showed a VEP for a comparable non-binocular stimulus, none showed evidence of binocular function. A further group of infants were tested longitudinally, starting between 35-50 days. The median age for the first evidence of binocular function in this group was 91 days, with individual variation from 54 to at least 105 days.
