Abstract:

This report covers work from June 15, 1989 to June 14, 1992. The main accomplishments have been 1 Completion and publication of a comprehensive study of the effects of chromatic content, blur and contrast of targets on vernier acuity and on stereo acuity 2 The use of a new method of measuring chromatic discrimination under conditions of constant adaptation and the publication of reports on this work 3 Experiments on the significance of color in the perception of motion 4 Experiments on the effects of chromatic adaptation on color matching 5 The effects of noise masks on the detection of chromatic and luminance pulses 6 Continuation of the study of the chromatic properties of single cells in the monkey cortex extending our experiments to Area V2 7 Experiments on the effects of chromatic adaptation on the responses of single neurons in monkey LGN to chromatic stimuli and 8 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.
