retinal corresponding points 

Two points (or small areas), one in each retina, which when simultaneously stimulated give rise to the perception of a single object. These points share a common line of direction and this explains why stimulating them is perceived as arising from the same point in space. Syn. normal retinal correspondence (NRC). See Panum's area; retinal disparity; horopter; law of identical visual directions; after-image transfer test.
