The luminance pathway has slow (s), spectrally opponent cone inputs in addition to the expected fast (f), non-opponent inputs. The nature of these inputs to luminance flicker perception was further explored psychophysically by measuring middle- (M-) and long-wavelength-sensitive (L-) cone modulation sensitivities, M- and L-cone phase delays, and flicker spectral sensitivities under three conditions of low to moderate long-wavelength adaptation. Under these conditions we find that the luminance… CONTINUE READING
