Effect of differential light adaptation of the two eyes on the phosphene threshold
AbstractThis study is essentially a repitition of a previous investigation by Achelis and Merkulow who found the phosphene threshold altered when the 2 eyes were adapted to differential illumination. The results "indicate that the light or dark adaptation of one eye does not affect the phosphene threshold of the other eye." Achelis' and Merkulow's findings are attributed to artifacts and their postulation of a cortical determinant of the phosphene threshold is rejected as unnecessary. From Psyc Abstracts 36:01:1BI25C.
