In normal subjects, binocular rivalry suppression takes time to build up (Wolfe, 1986a). The time courses of interocular suppression are different and heterogeneous in amblyopic subjects (de Belsunce & Sireteanu, 1991). In the present study, we found that, in normal observers, progressive reduction of one eye's stimulus luminance with neutral density filters produces time courses similar to those of amblyopic subjects. Conversely, in amblyopes, attenuation of the dominant eye's stimulus produces time courses similar to those of normal observers. Under conditions of balancing of the two eyes, amblyopes experience alternating suppression, similarly to binocular rivalry of normals.
