Abstract

The detectability of a sinusoidal grating was measured in a standard two-interval forced-choice experiment against backgrounds of noise gratings of the same orientation as the signal. The noise gratings were either spatially high-pass or low-pass filtered and were either unchanged in each observation interval (static) or flickering at a rate that depended on their cutoff frequency (dynamic). Spatial-frequency-selective mechanisms are inferred from the data and their characteristics shown to depend on assumptions concerning the detection process thought to follow the spatial-frequency-selective device.
