Abstract

I. INTRODUCTION 

CORRESPONDING RETINAL ELEMENTS NORMAL AND ANOMALOUS RETINAL CORRESPONDENCE  ALL VITAL manifestations in man have an objective and a subjective aspect. The interrelation of these two aspects represents one of the most complex problems of psychophysiology and philosophy. But the relation is accessible to a relatively simple analytic investigation when it is reduced to the basic sensory phenomena, as, for instance, in studying the act of vision. Such studies do not require the solution of the general problem—it this is at all soluble by rational methods—but, rather, form the basis for it.In the act of vision the "objective sphere," or "aspect," consists in (a) the object points in space and the wavelengths emitted or reflected by them (visual stimuli) and (b) the geometric optic properties of the refractive media of the eye, which determine the place and character of the dioptric image on the retina, and, furthermore,
