Abstract

The relationship between the ability to detect a low-contrast grating and to identify its spatial frequency or orientation was examined at eccentricities ranging from 0 to 17.5 deg. The form of the relationship between the ability to detect and to identify stimuli as contrast varies was found to be the same for peripheral viewing as for central viewing, i.e… (More)
