Previous work shows that the red-green (RG) detection mechanism is highly sensitive, responding to equal and opposite long-wave (L) and middle-wave (M) cone contrast signals. This mechanism mediates red-green hue judgements under many conditions. We show that the RG detection mechanism also receives a weak input from the short-wave (S) cones that supports the L signal and equally opposes M. This was demonstrated with a pedestal paradigm, in which weak S cone flicker facilitates discrimination… Expand
S-cone contributions to linear and non-linear motion processing
TLDR
The characteristics of mechanisms mediating motion discrimination of S-cone isolating stimuli are investigated and a double dissociation between the effects of luminance noise and chromatic noise is found, concluding that S-cones contribute to motion via two different pathways. Expand
Cone weights for the two cone-opponent systems in peripheral vision and asymmetries of cone contrast sensitivity
TLDR
Measure detection threshold contours within three planes in a 3-dimensional cone contrast space to reveal the L, M and S-cone weights to the two cone opponent mechanisms, L/M and S/(L+M), suggesting the underlying structures of the cone opponent mechanism are invariant. Expand
Human Color Vision
TLDR
Red-green color blindness is not associated with loss of acuity, although this is present in a rare form of dichromacy called Bornholm eye disease where cone dysfunction and myopia is also present, and the recessive disorder of achromatopsia where all cone classes may be absent. Expand
ON COLOUR SPACES AND ON COLOUR PERCEPTION - Independence between uniques and chromatic circularity
TLDR
This work proposes two nonlinear, tridimensional transformations of the variables of the RGB (or LMS) colour space, making explicit a circularity of chromaticity for spectral colours. Expand
Influence of motion on chromatic detection
TLDR
Threshold was elevated in the coherent condition compared to the random condition, and threshold decreased with an increase in speed, which can be accounted for by temporal integration or spatial integration. Expand

TLDR
Thresholds for colorimetric purity were only a little higher than those for hue angle, and the advantage for hue was seen in only part of the ranges that were tested, finding general support for Judd's working rule that thresholds for purity are systematically twice those for saturation. Expand
An S-cone circuit for edge detection in the primate retina
TLDR
While spectral opponency in a primate RGC is classically assumed to contribute to hue perception, a role supporting edge detection is more consistent with the S-OFF midget RGC receptive field structure and studies of hue perception. Expand
An S-cone circuit for edge detection in the primate retina
TLDR
The existence of the single S-cone center OFF midget RGC circuit in the central retina of macaque monkey both structurally and functionally is confirmed by combining single cell electrophysiology with 3D electron microscopy reconstructions of the upstream circuitry. Expand
Connectomic Identification and Three-Dimensional Color Tuning of S-OFF Midget Ganglion Cells in the Primate Retina
TLDR
The hypothesis that the OFF midget pathway is the major conduit for S-OFF signals in primate retina is supported and the pathway is redefined as a chromatically complex substrate that encodes color signals beyond the classically recognized L versus M and S versus L+M cardinal mechanisms. Expand
Connectomic identification and three-dimensional color tuning of S-OFF midget ganglion cells in the primate retina
TLDR
These findings strongly support the hypothesis that the OFF midget pathway is the major conduit for S-OFF signals in primate retina, and redefines the pathway as a chromatically complex substrate that encodes color signals beyond the classically recognized L vs. M and S vs. L+M cardinal mechanisms.

The influence of contrast adaptation on color appearance
TLDR
This work uses the perceived color changes of chromatic test stimuli to examine the spectral sensitivities of the chromatic channels and to estimate the distribution of channels, and suggests that color appearance depends on channels that can be selectively tuned to any color-luminance direction.

Detection mechanisms in L-, M-, and S-cone contrast space.
TLDR
A red-green chromatic mechanism driven by delta L/L--delta M/M with no S-cone input that was 1 order of magnitude more sensitive than the two other mechanisms was revealed. Expand

Contributions of human long‐wave and middle‐wave cones to motion detection.
TLDR
Threshold contours plotted in cone‐contrast co‐ordinates for the long‐wave (L) and middle‐ wave (M) cones revealed two motion mechanisms: a luminance mechanism that responds to a weighted sum of L and M contrasts, and a spectrally opponent mechanism that reflects a weighted difference. Expand
Temporal phase response of the short-wave cone signal for color and luminance
TLDR
The observed phase shift, and measured color appearance of the combined flicker, account for the colors seen on a radially segmented disk of Munsell hues when rotated: the colors differ strikingly depending on the direction of rotation. Expand
Visual interactions with luminance and chromatic stimuli.
TLDR
The suprathreshold luminance pedestals facilitated chromatic detection by as much as 2-3X and also linearized the chromatic psychometric function, further enhancing sensitivity to weak chromatic stimuli. Expand
