  • That 60hz flicker is killer on my parafoveal vision.


  • Most importantly, the threshold peak in the parafoveal condition at a small is replicated with the model.

  • The arrows above the histograms indicate the mean preferred spatial frequency of neurons within foveal (brown) or parafoveal (red) hypercolumns.

  • Also, the early peak in parafoveal threshold appears at an alpha that is smaller than the data, and the peak height from the flat region preceding it is much higher in the model than in the data.

  • The model is inefficient for the foveal threshold at, and for the foveal and parafoveal threshold at.
