Psychometric performance was measured for contrast detection and spatial resolution tasks in foveal and peripheral vision. Objective evidence was obtained for a quantitative difference between resolution acuity and detection acuity in the peripheral field. These two types of spatial acuity differed by up to an order of magnitude (3 vs 30 c/deg at 30 deg eccentricity) and they varied with stimulus contrast in distinctly different ways. Contrast sensitivity at the resolution limit was an order of… CONTINUE READING
