This study considered whether the dynamics of flicker adaptation can be explained in terms of probability summation over time between independent ON- and OFF-processors. Foveal thresholds were measured for flickering probes, and for static ON- and OFF-probes that have durations consistent with the flicker duty cycle. Thresholds were obtained using a probe-flash stimulus onset asynchrony paradigm. The outcome of the experiment suggests that flicker thresholds are lower than the component ON- and OFF-thresholds, and that the flicker response can be predicted by assuming probability summation between the ON- and OFF-mechanisms.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
