Abstract : The three specific aims of this current ongoing project include: 1) the characterization of the human and monkey photoreceptor lattice; 2) the study of new spatial discriminations in two-dimensions including circle center, area, and dot density discriminations, and 3) the expansion and generalization of current models of one-dimensional spatial discriminations such as spatial-frequency, line separation, and vernier acuity.
