Spectral sensitivity of cat cones to rapid flicker


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