  • n. The stimulus involved in photostimulation

Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • The RAM's explanation of perceived color constancy is the same as the RANC's explanation for olfaction: The RAM cells that respond to a photostimulus depend on the ordering of the cones 'responses, and that ordering does not change with photostimulus intensity.

  • Perceived complexity in a single photostimulus can be greater than in a mixture of several photostimuli.

  • If perceptions of black and white are counted, a photostimulus perceived as a desaturated greenish yellow could have complexity as great as 4.

  • A monochromatic photostimulus (of a single wavelength or a narrow band of wavelengths) has the least spectral complexity.

  • The cone response ordering is M Just as more than one odor can be discriminated in an odorant, more than one hue can be perceived in a photostimulus.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • For example, a photostimulus is perceived as green when the M cone (that is sensitive to medium wavelengths of light) has a high absorption of photons and the S and L cones have low absorptions.

  • When a greenish-yellow photostimulus is desaturated with both black and white components, for example, the perceived strength of at least one of these components is often so minute that identifying all four is difficult for most observers.

  • Alternately, a monochromatic photostimulus with wavelength around 570 nm is perceived as unique yellow, while a photostimulus with a complex spectral distribution can be perceived as greenish yellow.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • The RAM predicts perceptual phenomena in photostimulus mixtures that are analogous to perceptions of odors in mixtures.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Since this state of cone responses is the condition for the perception of green, also represents the fuzzy truth value of the proposition "The photostimulus is green."
