Sampling limits and critical bandwidth for letter discrimination in peripheral vision.


We develop and test two functional hypotheses based on the sampling theory of visual resolution that might account for letter acuity in peripheral vision. First, a letter smaller than the acuity limit provides insufficient veridical energy for performing the task, and, second, the available veridical energy is masked by increased amounts of visible but… (More)
