Abstract:

By using a modified conditioned suppression technique, critical fusion frequencies were determined across 8.0 log units of brightness for three rhesus monkeys. Threshold values ranged from 20 c.p.s. for -3.9 log ft. L. to 95 c.p.s. for 4.1 log ft. L. Although systematic individual differences were observed at each brightness value, the intrasubject variability did not exceed 5 c.p.s. upon replication.
