Abstract

Photopic spectral-sensitivity data were obtained on two Rhesus monkeys and two human subjects. The data show peaks in the sensitivity functions near 600 nm, 530 nm, and 440 nm, and dips in sensitivity near 480 nm and 580 nm. The data indicate that the Rhesus monkey has photopic spectral sensitivity equivalent to that of man.
