How does the visual system adjust to long term changes in the environment? Here we use novel “altered reality” technology to place subjects in versions of the world that have been image processed in real time. This allows us to measure effects of adapting to altered contrast (at a limited range of orientations) for adapting durations of up to 4 days. This long-term adaptation: 1) Continues to grow in strength as the adapting duration gets longer, 2) Becomes more durable as the adapting duration gets longer, and 3) Is distinct from shorter term adaptation.
