Definition of ocular dominance in English:

ocular dominance


  • The priority of one eye over the other as regards preference of use or acuity of vision.

    ‘This could generate discrete regions of cortical cells that respond only to one eye or the other, and so form the ocular dominance columns.’
    • ‘Each eye's input occupies regions that form curving, branching ocular dominance stripes, each about 0.3 mm wide, running across the middle layers of the cortex.’
