Abstract

The amplitude of the human visually evoked cortical potential (VECP), which has been shown to vary as a function of the dimensions of checks in a checkerboard pattern, was used to objectively assess the visual acuity of the blue-sensitive compared with the red- and green-sensitive mechanisms in the eye. The results agree with psychophysical measures which have indicated poorer acuity of the blue system compared with the red and green systems.
