  21. What are narrow band filters?
    Allow only a small range of wavelengths to pass through
  22. What are interference filters?
    Transmit only one wavelength
  23. What are broad band filters?
    Transmit large range of wavelengths
  24. What are long-pass filters?
    Transmit only long wavelengths
  25. How do sunglasses filter UVR?
    By use of long-pass filters
  26. What are neutral density filters?
    The transmit wavelengths equally at different intensities
  27. What happens if a neutral density filter is placed over the right eye?
    The planar pendulum appears elliptical and moves in a counterclockwise direction

  35. What is the Bezold-Bruke phenomenon?
    Wavelengths show a slight change in hue as the intensity of light is increased
  36. What is the copunctal point?
    Where colors are indistinguishable on a CIE color system
  37. How do you calculate contrast?
    • Example problem
    • Projected luminance 50 units
    • Onto a background of 100 units
    • Contrast = (50-100) / (50+100) = 50/150 = 33 percent

    • Uncrossed retinal disparity
    • Crossed retinal disparity
  40. What is uncrossed retinal disparity?
    If the image falls on the nasal side of the retina, the object is perceived to be farther away
  41. What is crossed retinal disparity?
    If the image falls on the temporal side of the retinal, the object is perceived to be closer
  42. What is the Troxler phenomenon?
    The fading of retinal images that are stabilized
  43. What is the broca-sulzer effect?
    Light appears brightest when they last for about 50-100msec
  44. What is the bruke-bartley effect?
    Flicker light of the same luminance appears brighter than steady light
  45. What is masking?
    When one stimulus (mask) decreases the visibility of another stimulus
