Abstract

Multicolored images were produced by the combination of two different color-separation images, one illuminated with 656 nm light and the other illuminated with 500 nm light. Flicker-fusion frequency measurements were used to identify the conditions in which the 500 nm light was below cone threshold. Under those conditions the multicolred images were shown to be generated by rod and long-wave cone interactions.
