Abstract : We have studied the effects of low level coherent light on tectal neural activity in Pseudemys. Irreversible changes in spectral sensitivity and receptive field characteristics were obtained following exposure to coherent light. These effects with coherent light were more significant than the effects of either time-averaged or incoherent light of equal quantal retinal irradiance. (Author)
