Current approaches to the problem of equating different colors for luminance (chromatic isoluminance) rely upon human reports of perceptual events that are reduced at some luminance ratio. In this report, a technique is described that evokes a vivid percept of motion of a textured pattern only at isoluminance. Furthermore, in both humans and monkeys, the moving stimulus produces a striking optokinetic response in the same direction as the perceived motion. If used in this manner, the technique can provide an estimate of chromatic isoluminance in a variety of species and be used to corroborate a human subjects's perceptual judgement.
