Colour constancy as a function of hue

J. J. Kulikowski, H. Vaitkevicius

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The effects of colour categories on colour constancy were studied under two illuminants and two neutral grey backgrounds using Munsell chips and colour matching. It was found that the categorical colours: red, yellow, green and blue, which are processed by basic colour-opponent mechanisms, show relatively better colour constancy than intermediate colours. The dominant wavelength of these categorical colours are closely related to the typical hues obtained in experiments with narrow-band spectral hues. © 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
