PSYC 4165 Homework 3: Contrast Sensitivity Part 1: a. Yes. The minimum contrast required for a 3.0 cpd sine wave grating is 0.00229 + (0.00175 – 0.00229) * (3.75-3.0) / (3.75 – 2.65) = 0.00192. Thus a higher contrast of 0.005 will be sufficient to see the stimulus, as it is above the threshold. b. No. The minimum contrast required for a 30.0 cpd sine wave grating is 0.0702. Thus a lower contrast of 0.005 will not be sufficient to see the stimulus, as it is below the threshold. Part 2: Contrast Sensitivity Function 1 10 100 1000 1 10 100 Log of Spatial Frequency

Unformatted text preview: Contrast Sensitivity This contrast sensitivity function is dissimilar to the standard graph shown on page 51 of the textbook. The lower spatial frequencies are much more sensitive in this data, probably due to the integration of many functions for low spatial frequency vision. This leads to a higher real sensitivity than theoretical individual receptive field performance. The peak sensitivity also appears higher, though past medium frequencies the shape of the graph closely follows the standard....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
