Central and Peripheral Mechanisms of Colour Vision

Central and Peripheral Mechanisms of Colour Vision This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract This volume samples the proceedings of a 1984 symposium at the Wenner-Gren Center, Stockholm. The organizers of the meeting achieved in part their goal to explore "how the known physiology of the visual pathways, from the retina to central areas of the visual cortex, can account for [the perception of color]." A majority of the entries deal with the riddle of color constancy. More specifically, how is it that the color reflected from an object is perceived as unchanging despite wide variations of the intensity or color composition of light illuminating the object? Accordingly, the volume is led off by Land's presentation of the Retinex theory and an introduction to the problem of color constancy. With the exception of Zeki's consideration of the anatomy and functional organization of the monkey cortex, the remainder of the entries are by theorists and psychophysicists (Blake, Hurvich, Jameson, MacLeod, Pugh, and others) and biophysicists http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Ophthalmology American Medical Association
