Abstract:

Efforts during the past year have been directed primarily to the collection and analysis of fundus reflectometry data from human and animal sources with particular emphasis on reflectance changes in the human fovea following both brief and extended photolysis. Studies of the retinal periphery and fovea of the rhesus monkey were performed at intensities above and below the threshold for retinal burns. A five-component model of the retinal photo pigment kinetics was utilized in the selection of exposures for the human experiments. Concurrent psychophysical flashblindness experiments with identical exposures were performed to allow comparisons between the data from both sources.
