Abstract : The effects of intense spectral light on spectral sensitivity were investigated. Both continuous adaptation and pulsed adaptation were used. It was found that spectral adaptation in discrete spectral band was reduced by intense blue, green, and red adaptation. A model of the primate spectral sensitivity was developed which can be used to predict the effects of laser and other spectral sources on retinal sensitivity. (Author)
