Hi,

The full essay question is 'Give details of four monocular cues and explain their importance to the perception of depth and/or distance'.

It's easy enough to provide the details of the monocular cues (relative size, interposition, texture gradient, linear perspective and shading); I know there are five there, but I haven't narrowed it down yet. However, I require help on the second aspect of the question. I can't really find any information regarding the importance of these cues, so I only have my guesses to go on which is worrying because I am not sure whether they are correct.

Thank you!

Their main importance is that they aid us in survival. They allow us to navigate and interact with the environment around us during everyday tasks, such as driving. Perception by Blake and Sekuler (2006) is a good book to start with!
