PURPOSE The frequency-doubling illusion is an apparent doubling of spatial frequency when a sinusoidal grating is modulated rapidly in temporal counterphase. It has been proposed that the illusion arises from a spatially nonlinear ganglion cell class. The current study reexamines this possibility and investigates other mechanisms that may underlie the illusion. METHODS Responses of macaque magnocellular (MC) retinal ganglion cells were recorded to counterphase-modulated sinusoidal gratings of… CONTINUE READING
