Paper Abstract

Using a blue laser stimulus we measured TMTF with speckle sizes of 19.1 µm, 3.3 µm and absence of speckle. Our results indicate, if we compare the TMTF curves obtained for different speckle sizes, a gain of modulation due fundamentally to the presence of the spec kle; in the low frequency region this gain of modulation can be explained in terms of inhibitory effects. On the other hand, we observe by using the diffusion-inhibition model, that the presence of speckle in the test-field produces a delay of 12 ms and a reduction of the height of the response, with respect to that obtained in the uniform test (with absence of speckle).
