Photopic spectral sensitivities of the red and the yellow field of the pigeon retina

By J.F. Wortel, R.J. Wubbels and J.F.W. Nuboer


The spectral sensitivities of the red field and the yellow field in the retina of the homing pigeon (Columba Livia) were determined on the basis of ERG responses. Between 450 and 550 nm the relative spectral sensitivity of the yellow field turned out to be higher than that of the red field. The results are in agreement with spectral sensitivity data, obtained by behavioural threshold procedures
