Greater losses in sensitivity to second-order local motion than to first-order local motion after early visual deprivation in humans

We compared sensitivity to first-order versus second-order local motion in patients treated for dense central congenital cataracts in one or both eyes. Amplitude modulation thresholds were measured for discriminating the direction of motion of luminance-modulated (first-order) and contrast modulated (second-order) horizontal sine-wave gratings. Early visual… CONTINUE READING
