Work Step by Step

Parallax does underlie depth perception. The right eye can see slightly more around the right side of the object because of the eye's location, and a similar situation holds for the left eye and the left side. The difference in the two views, parallax, tells our brain how far away the object is located. This is discussed on page 557.
