The spatial and temporal properties of rod vision were measured for stimuli at and above the detection threshold in an achromat whose spectral sensitivity, dark adaptation, spatial and temporal thresholds and Stiles-Crawford effect suggest the presence of only a normally functioning rod system. The properties of rod and cone vision were compared at illuminances where their respective sensitivities were optimum. The threshold spatial sensitivity of the rod mechanism under optimum illumination… CONTINUE READING
