Spectral sensitivity in the red-green spectral range typically reflects the joint influence of the middle-wavelength-sensitive cones (the M or green cones) and long-wavelength-sensitive cones (the L or red cones). The balance of M- and L-cone influence can be altered by presenting the test lights superimposed upon steady background fields of long or short wavelength. We find that presenting test stimuli just after an abrupt exchange between two colored backgrounds permits an easier and closer… CONTINUE READING
