Remarks on the Tables: ( i ) Division I of the tables shows the lowest point for each absolute intensity at which the stereoscopic effect was complete, Division II the point at which it had entirely ceased. Between these points there was a region of partial or incomplete combination. Here the outlines were sometimes confusedly intermingled, sometimes the complete stereoscopic effect would alternately appear and disappear, and again there would occur the phenomenon of the competition of the vision-fields, first one and then another set of lines becoming distinct. (2) In the last division of the tables, which gives for each absolute intensity the amount of light which can be admitted to one eye without producing any change in the brightness of the common vision-field, it will be observed that the results are less regular than in Tables I-III in the preceding section. But that is probably because these results represent the averages of a smaller number of trials. The judgments concerning light intensity are more difficult than those regarding the stereoscopic effect. (3) All the results are slightly less regular with the highest intensities used, owing probably to those intensities being somewhat near the "upper limit" for the eyes adapted to the darkened room.
