Abstract
The visual system transmits information from the retina to the brain along several different classes of parallel channel, each with its own characteristic responses. It is therefore inappropriate to describe visual responses in terms of a single overall modulation transfer function. We describe a psychophysical method for the measurement of spatial and temporal responses of single visual threshold mechanisms, present data for two such mechanisms and show how they can be used in the computation of responses to moving targets.
