The spectral sensitivity of the common chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) was measured with electroretinogram (ERG) flicker photometry. Chromatic adaptation conditions were used to establish the presence of S-, M- and L-cone pigments. Each of 26 chimpanzees showed substantial and approximately equivalent adaptational changes over the middle and long wavelengths implying an absence of any significant polymorphic variations in the M- and L-cone pigments. As inferred from ERG measurements, the S-cone… CONTINUE READING
