The recent literature on test threshold and color vision in human infants is critically reviewed. Test thresholds are higher in infants than in adults at the absolute threshold and at all adapting luminances, but approach adult values rapidly over the first six months of life. The spectral luminous efficiency function of infants is similar to V(lambda) above 1.0 log phot. cd/m2. For lights below about 1.0 log scot. cd/m2 and wavelengths shorter than 590 nm, the luminous efficiency function is… CONTINUE READING
