Abstract:

This report covers our activities since June 15, 1990. The main accomplishments have been 1 Continued experiments on the variation of color discrimination over color space, 2 Experiments on the influence of color on the perception of coherent motion, 3 Experiments on the effects of chromatic adaptation on color appearance, 4 Electro-physiological experiments on the effects of chromatic stimuli on the responses of neurons physiological experiments on the effects of chromatic stimuli on the responses of neurons in the LGN and the visual cortex of macaque, and 5 The development of a new system for making displays for visual experiments on TV monitors which allows at least 12 bits of accuracy in the specification of the intensity of each of the three primaries.
