Striate cells showing linear spatial summation obey very general mathematical inequalities relating the size of their receptive fields to the corresponding spatial frequency and orientation tuning characteristics. The experimental data show that, in the preferred direction of stimulus motion, the spatial response profiles of cells in the simple family are(More)
Spatial response profiles to stationary and moving stimuli and spatial frequency tuning curves to drifting sinusoidal gratings were recorded from a series of cells in the simple family. The spatial response profiles were recorded both to stationary flashing bars and sinusoidal gratings as well as to light and dark bars and edges and gratings moving at the(More)
A paper by Rabin et al. (1994) Vision Research, 34, 2657-2671, claimed that spatially extensive grating stimuli could be used to generate chromatic-specific visual evoked potentials from subjects assumed to have standard spectral sensitivity and tritanopic confusion lines. Here we demonstrate that such spatially extensive stimuli may generate responses(More)
The experiments that we report aim to elucidate the linkage between cone outputs and color sensation. This is investigated by measuring wavelength discrimination between stimuli at threshold levels of detection. Stimuli are large spots (0.75 deg) presented on a white background. A 2 x 2 alternate forced choice method is used to measure simultaneously the(More)
