The perceived configuration of a face can be strongly biased by prior adaptation to a face with a distorted configuration. These aftereffects have been found to be weaker when the adapt and test faces differ along a number of dimensions. We asked whether the adaptation shows more transfer between faces that share a common identity, by comparing the strength(More)
Sustained vertebrate vision requires that opsin chromophores isomerized by light to the all-trans form be replaced with 11-cis retinal to regenerate the visual pigment. We have characterized the early receptor potential (ERP), a component of the electroretinogram arising from photoisomerization-induced charge displacements in plasma membrane visual pigment,(More)
PURPOSE To quantify the response dynamics of fast adaptation mechanisms of the scotopic ERG in younger and older adults using full-field m-sequence flash stimulation. METHODS Scotopic ERGs were measured for a series of flashes separated by 65 ms over a range of 260 ms in 16 younger (20-26, 22.2 ± 2.1; range mean ±1 SD) and 16 older (65-85, 71.2 ± 7)(More)
Purpose To investigate the topographic changes of the dark-adapted multifocal electroretinogram (mfERG) across adulthood in the central retina and compare the topography between macular versus extramacular, nasal versus temporal, and inferior versus superior retinal areas. Methods Sixty-five subjects (18-88 years) received a comprehensive dilated eye(More)
