Magnitude estimates of brightness were obtained for small (5-deg diameter) and large (15 deg X 20 deg) targets viewed through yellow-tinted lenses (ytl's) and luminance-matched neutral lenses. The results indicate that brightness perception with ytl's is up to 40% greater than that with neutral lenses when the spatial extent of the stimulus exceeds the fovea. The onset of the enhancement effect is coincident with the chromatic threshold, and its end point is coincident with psychophysical… CONTINUE READING
