Abstract

Prolonged exposure to flickering chromatic light of moderate intensity produce a much weaker complementary afterimage than that produced by exposure to stead light of the same average intesity. This difference in adapting effectiveness was investigated by determining theretinal illuminance of the study adapting field required to produce an afterimage equal… (More)
