Abstract

The spatially localized threshold-elevation aftereffect of spatial-frequency adaptation was measured by using localized, aperiodic test patterns that have bandpass Fourier transforms. At a given retinal location, the thresholdelevation curves are consistent with the fatigue of size-tuned mechanisms with center-surround sensitivity profile. Only a few different sizes of such mechanisms were required to fit the local results. The local aftereffect was also measured as a function of eccentricity near the fovea. The results indicate that the threshold-elevation aftereffect of spatial-frequency adaptation is not spatially homogeneous
