Spectral sensitivity of cat cones to rapid flicker


, : Spectral sensitivity of cat cones to rapid flicker. Experimental Brain Research 62(2): 446-448

Records obtained from the flicker photometric electroretinogram indicate that only a single spectral mechanism (.lambda.MAX = 555 nm) in the cat eye contributes to the response to 50 Hz flicker. A photopic mechanism (.lambda.MAX = 500-510 nm) detected in earlier studies does not respond to high frequency flicker.

Flickering lights that are detected by the blue cones of the human visual system fuse to yield a steady sensation at much lower rates of flicker than do lights that are detected by the red or green cones.
