Binocular vision in the rabbit

Physiol Behav. 1977 Jul;19(1):121-8. doi: 10.1016/0031-9384(77)90168-8.


Two experiments are reported where rabbits were trained on both an Either- Or and a Same-Different visual discrimination task. A system of coloured patterns and light filters ensured that information was accessible only by binocular vision. The results showed that the animals were able to solve both types of discrimination problems under these conditions.
