  24. Spillman, Hendershot, and Nowlan [Albrecht von Graefes Arch. Klin. Exp. Ophthalmol. 182, 206, (1971)] have reported that some subjects show a small elevation of threshold just before the rod-cone break with test stimuli composed of unfiltered tungsten light. Their results are difficult to explain with our hypothesis, which requires conditions where rods and cones are equally sensitive for some critical period. It should be pointed out that previous studies utilizing such broad-band light have not demonstrated the threshold elevation effect and that not all of the subjects in the study by Spillman et al., exhibited it. Perhaps in some subjects rod recovery is slow enough so that even with tungsten light, the interaction can occur just prior to the rod-cone break.
