Peripheral Color Vision and Motion Processing
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2470-1173.2016.16.HVEI-138  Published OnlineFebruary 2016

A demonstration of the vividness of peripheral color vision is provided by arrays of multicolored disks scaled with eccentricity. These demonstrations are designed to correct the widespread misconception that peripheral color vision is weak or non-existent. In fact, both small and large disks of color scaled with eccentricity demonstrate that color perception is just as strong in throughout the periphery as in the fovea, under appropriate viewing conditions. Moreover, further demonstrations with cone-isolating motion stimuli indicate that motion perception is undiminished with rod activation silenced by the choice of colors with equal activation strengths for the rod spectral sensitivity.
