Ishihara isochromatic color plates were read by each candidate held at 75cm in front, perpendicular to the line of vision in a well illuminated place.
The position of each isochromatic fringe was estimated to [+ or -] 0.5 mm.
Colour vision was assessed with Ishihara isochromatic plates and with the Farnsworth Munsell 100-Hue tests.
Meanwhile, reduced glucose metabolism in the visual association cortex and inferior parietal cortex might be related to abnormalities in figure copying, color vision tested by isochromatic plates, and stereopsis [99].
Ishihara's isochromatic chart was used to identify colour blindness.
Here, a snapshot of isochromatic fringe pattern (contours of maximum in-plane shear stress, [[tau].sub.max]; the fringe order is proportional to [[tau].sub.max]) taken by a dynamic photoelastic experiment is shown.
Using the specialized nomenclature (e.g., Birch, 2001), the green and the orange of the lines 5 and 7 are pseudoisochromatic stimuli because they are the same colour (isochromatic) only for some people with colour vision deficiency (which is why the prefix "pseudo" is used).
If several objects are isochromatic, what do they share?
where N is the number of isochromatic fringes, [f.sub.[sigma]] is fringe value, and h is the thickness of specimen.
In this study, to evaluate the stress generated on the lateral face of the jaw, images showing isochromatic fringes of each load application were obtained using a digital camera equipped with an optical filter lens.
