Abstract

Studies of rod hue biases using monochromatic stimuli have shown that rod stimulation can shift the balance of hues at mesopic light levels. We found that the CRT display produced all three previously identified rod hue biases, which shifted the loci of all four unique hues at low mesopic light levels. Rod hue biases occurred at 2.6cd/m2 for some observers but not at 26cd/m2. At optimal light levels below 0.5cd/m2, rod hue biases varied among observers but generally (1) enhanced green versus red at unique yellow and sometimes at unique blue, (2) enhanced blue versus yellow at both unique green and unique red, and (3) enhanced red versus green at unique blue. Rod hue biases persisted for some observers even for smaller foveal stimuli.
