Well, I have a hunch that our monocular sense of “depth” is visual possibly linked to the diagonal direction of the ‘grid cells’ which are hexagons basically.
So a 60 or 120 degree angle more or less gives us that depth feeling that there’s room or space ahead.
hmm.. they did a thing with babies on plexiglass.. I wonder if they figured it out then? I’m sure they must’ve figured this out by now.. i’m just trying to find it.
yeah, they have depth perception but i think it’s monocular not binocular … so long since i’ve seen t his
ok looking like Gibson 1979 “Optical Flow’ might cover this and can combine with later findings in grid cells. Fingers crossed but I think I’m on the right track-ish
