Optimal Input Rates for Tilt Adaptation

Abstract

The effect of rate of change in optical tilt on adaptation was investigated by incrementing the level of tilt after every 5-min exposure period for a total of 25 min. The increments were 8, 10, and 12 deg in conditions 1, 2, and 3, respectively. In Experiment I the same subjects took part in all conditions; in Experiment II separate groups were used and the experiment was extended to include ten increments in tilt. In both experiments the rate of growth of adaptation varied inversely with the size of the increment. The results also suggest that higher levels of tilt require more time to process than lower levels and that increments in tilt may actually inhibit further processing when the change occurs too rapidly.
