Cortical components of the Westheimer function

The Westheimer function in human cone vision was measured in normal observers under dichoptic conditions and in observers with naturally acquired amblyopia. Results show interocular transfer of both desensitization and sensitization under either "sustained" or "transient" stimulus conditions if binocular rivalry is eliminated. The spatial sensitization branches of the amblyopic functions are considerably broadened as compared with those of the non-amblyopic function. Our results are consistent… CONTINUE READING
