Duration of visible persistence can vary inversely with stimulus intensity. This inverse-intensity effect is obtained by varying the intensity of the stimuli or of the background, provided that the variations extend into the mesopic range. A similar relationship--known as the Ferry-Porter law--holds for the critical frequency at fusion (CFF). The authors propose that studies of CFF, 2-pulse threshold, and visible persistence can be encompassed within 1 conceptual framework in which the effect… CONTINUE READING
