Summary: 
We studied the detection of the incongruence between the two eyes' retinal images from occlusion perception. We previously analyzed the evasion action caused by occlusion by using green-red equiluminance, which is processed by parvocellular cells. Here we analyzed this action by using yellow-blue equiluminance, which is said to be treated by koniocellular cells and parvocellular cells. We observed that there were the cases in which the subject could perceive incongruence by the occlusion and other cases in which the subject could not perceive it. Significant differences were not seen in all conditions. Because a difference was seen in an evasion action at the time of the rim occlusion gaze when we compare the result for the yellow-blue equiluminance with the green-red equiluminance, it is suggested that the response for each equiluminance is different. We were able to clarify the characteristic difference between parvocellular cells and koniocellular cells from an occlusion experiment.
