To study how adaptation to spatial frequency patterns affects temporal sensitivity in vision, observers were selectively adapted for 4 min to either a high- or a low-spatial-frequency sinusoidal grating (12 and 2 cpd, respectively). Their sensitivities to modulation of a blurred patch at high or low temporal frequencies (12 Hz and 2 Hz, respectively) were measured, before and after the adaptation period, by using the yes/no task of signal detection theory. The data consistently indicated that… CONTINUE READING
