Abstract : The document is concerned with stimulus duration which can be traded for stimulus intensity, within certain limits of permissible exchange, so that a short light flash appears brighter than a still shorter flash of the same luminance. This effect known as temporal summation or temporal integration has been investigated mostly by threshold techniques. The techniques of psychophysical scaling have made it possible to study the problem directly on the supra-liminal level under varying conditions of stimulus duration. A number of experiments are reported. (Author)
