Bar-like S-cone stimuli reveal the importance of an intermediate temporal filter

Abstract

The relative involvement of different temporal frequency-selective filters underlying detection of chromatic stimuli was studied. Diverse spectral stimuli were used, namely flashed blue and yellow light spots, wide bars, and narrow bars. The stimuli were temporally modulated in luminance having constant wavelength. Although the bar-like stimuli apparently reduced the sensitivity at short and long wavelengths, the cone-opponent mechanism still remained responsible for the actual stimulus detection at different temporal frequencies. The bar-like stimuli increased sensitivity for temporal frequencies around 36Hz, revealing involvement of an intermediate temporal frequency-selective filter in detection, the so-called transient-1 filter. A probability summation model for the method of adjustment was developed that assumes that detection depends on the properties of the temporal filters underlying the temporal frequency-sensitivity curve. The model supports the notion that at least two temporal frequency-selective filters are necessary to account for the shape of the sensitivity curves obtained for blue bar-like stimuli.
