||Equiluminance: Spatial and temporal factors and the contribution of blue-sensitive cones.
Determined equiluminance ratios for red/green, red/blue, and green/blue sine-wave gratings by using a minimum-motion heterochromatic matching technique that permitted reliable settings at temporal frequencies as low as 0.5 Hz in 2 experiments with 3 Ss. The red/green equiluminance ratio was influenced by temporal but not spatial frequency, the green/blue ratio was influenced by spatial but not temporal frequency, and the red/blue ratio was influenced by both. The inhomogeneity of yellow pigmentation within the macular region was identified as the source of the spatial-frequency effect on the blue/green ratio. Although effects of spatial and temporal frequency appeared to be consistent across observers, there were substantial differences in mean equiluminance settings between individuals.
