Spectral sensitivity of long wavelength sensitive photo receptors in dichromats determined by elimination of border percepts


Vision Research 18(6): 699-706
Spectral sensitivity of long wavelength sensitive photo receptors in dichromats determined by elimination of border percepts
Whatever the spectral distribution of the 2 components of a split field, the border separating them could be made to disappear completely for protanopes and deuteranopes [human]. The relative energies required for border disappearance could be used to specify the spectral sensitivity of the remaining cone type. The results imply a loss of spatial vision for these dichromats under conditions where normal subjects can easily make discriminations.
