Cone Spectral Sensitivity Studied with an ERG Method

  • Dirk V. Norren
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 24)


The spectral sensitivity of the separate cone mechanisms is difficult to determine. This is realized again if one tries to compare the results of distinguished investigators and finds that there is still much confusion about the exact shapes of these mechanisms. It seems worthwhile, therefore, to concentrate on these matters. Some preliminary results may be presented here.
