The chromatic antagonisms of opponent process theory are not the same as those revealed in studies of detection and discrimination.

Abstract

Wavelength discrimination for 1000-Td yellow lights was measured as a function of the wavelength of a 10-Td pre-adaptation field. Blue and red pre-adaptation fields impaired discrimination more than did violet or green fields.

Our fields appear to act at a site that differences the long- and middle-wave cone signals, but this does not correspond to the ‘red-green’ process of Opponent Colours Theory.
