Isoluminance and chromatic motion perception throughout the visual field


, : Isoluminance and chromatic motion perception throughout the visual field. Vision Research. 37(15): 2073-2081

Isoluminance and chromatic motion perception for red/green gratings were measured throughout an 80 deg visual field. Generally, the red/green isoluminance values changed with increasing eccentricity, i.e., observers increased the red luminance contrast for a fixed green luminance contrast. Enlarging the target size (to compensate for the cone density changes with eccentricity) and decreasing the spatial frequency (to compensate for receptive field property changes with eccentricity) did not change the isoluminance values within the central 20 deg, but the isoluminance ratios decreased beyond 20 deg. Our manipulations did not entirely compensate for a given eccentricity, which implies the need for a post-receptoral scaling function for the perception of drifting chromatic stimuli. Further, the results for isoluminance show heterogeneity between the visual field meridians where the red to green luminance ratio tends to be greater in the superior visual field. In our present conditions, chromatic motion was always perceived (up to 40 deg of eccentricity), but sensitivity generally decreased with increasing eccentricity. The inferior visual field was found to be the most sensitive to chromatic motion. We propose that the lower visual field and not the superior visual field is specialized for colour motion information.
