    Fox pursues a program of research on visual perception that embraces, variously, infants, children, normal, mildly mentally retarded, and elderly adults. Major topics are binocular visual phenomenon such as global stereopsis, rivalry and fusion. Related interests are perception of 3D space and global motion. Recently, he discovered profound deficits in visual perception in the mildly retarded. These heretofore unsuspected anomalies provide a new perspective on intelligence and cognitive function.
