Coloured surfaces in the normal environment may be brighter or dimmer than the mean adaptation level. Changes in the firing rate of cells of the parvocellular layers of macaque lateral geniculate nucleus were studied with such stimuli; chromatic mixtures briefly replaced a white adaptation field. This paradigm is therefore one of successive contrast.(More)
Neurons with strong inhibitory short-wavelength sensitive cone (S-cone) inputs have been identified in the macaque geniculate using a tritanopic confusion line test, i.e. by stimulation with equiluminous stimuli which leave excitations of long- and middle-wavelength sensitive cones (L- and M-cones) constant while differentially exciting S-cones.(More)
1. The relation between wavelength and psychophysical threshold for chromatic spots on a white background provides evidence for the existence of chromatic channels in the primate visual system. To find the physiological substrate of this task, we compared increment thresholds of different cell types in the macaque lateral geniculate nucleus with human(More)
