Masking has been used for several decades as an experimental technique to investigate the temporal properties of visual information-processing in specific populations of human observers. Among these are individuals suffering from amblyopia, psychiatric patients suffering from major depression and from schizophrenia, neurological patients, and individuals with specific attentional, learning, and reading disabilities. While differences of masking performance between control observers and observers from these specific populations are generally expected, these differences can also be theoretically relevant when they are clearly predictable from properties or processes underlying visual information processing.

Keywords:   specific populations, temporal processing, amblyopia, schizophrenia, reading disability
