Judgments of temporal order to monocular pairs of flashes of equal luminance delivered at various onset asynchronies to the light-adapted fovea and periphery show that uncertainty of temporal order results when the onset of the foveal flash is delayed. Relative latencies vary as a function of peripheral (nasal vs. temporal) locus stimulated.
