Cross-species correspondence of spatial contrast sensitivity functions.


Spatial contrast sensitivity functions (CSFs) have been obtained for at least 9 species, including man. In the present paper, the shapes and octave band widths of these functions are compared. For most species, the shape of the CSF was an inverted-U, and the full width at half amplitude of the CSFs varied less than one octave. These similarities suggest that there is a close correspondence of the CSFs of these diverse animals; the major difference is the location of each CSF in the spatial frequency domain.
