Acuity was measured with high contrast gratings in three orientations at several tetinat ecccntricities. Acuity for obliquely oriented gratings was poorer than for vertical or horizontal gratings but this difference disappeared with eccentric viewing. The precise locus of disappearance varied from S’ to 1s’ between subjects. A similar reduction of the orientation effect can be achieved with target contrast reduction which supports the view that the magnitude of the orientation preference… CONTINUE READING
