Effects of ageing on postreceptoral short-wavelength gain control: transient tritanopia increases with age.
 

Author(s): A Werner, A Bayer, G Schwarz, E Zrenner, W Paulus

Journal: Vision Res.. 2010 Aug;50(17):1641-8.

 

We investigated the effect of ageing on the neural gain control in the short-wavelength opponent channel. In order to tackle specifically postreceptoral changes, we determined the effect of ageing on transient tritanopia, a paradoxical and transient reduction of short-wavelength sensitivity ...

Author(s): G Haegerstrom-Portnoy, W A Verdon

Journal: Vision Res.. 1999 Jun;39(13):2275-84.

 

Transient tritanopia is a cone-cone post-receptoral interaction between short-wavelength (S) cones and medium (M) and long (L) wavelength cones. Blue cone monochromats have rods and S cones of normal sensitivity but lack functional M/L cones. All blue cone monochromats tested (n = ...
