Random-dot stereograms when used as adaptation stimuli can influence the perceived depth of similar test stimuli. Adaptation for 1 minute is sufficient to evoke this three-dimensional aftereffect for several seconds. This aftereffect must occur after stereopsis because prior to stereopsis no relevant monocular cues exist in these adaptation and test stimuli.
