Instituut voor Zintuigfysiologie TNO Publication year 1971 Abstract To derive the fundamental response curves for the three colour mediating systems from the location of the dichromatic confusion centres, one must make certain assumptions on the nature of dichromatism. It is shown, however, that one can avoid to make specific quantitative assumptions by bringing into the picture other visual data, such as the huestable wavelengths of the Bezold-Brücke effect and the Weber-fractions for the three separate systems. Then, an almost unique choice can be made about the set of primaries. Moreover, it can be derived that protanopia and deuteranopia have to be characterized by complete absence of the R-resp. the G-system. Finally some relations are derived between the visual constants involved Subject Visionbiological modelcolorcolor visionhumanmathematicsphotoreceptorphysiologyretina macula luteaColorColor PerceptionHumanMacula LuteaMathematicsModels, BiologicalPhotoreceptors To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:9396d7c6-1727-4061-b83a-0f382b51c1fb TNO identifier 4294 Source Vision Research, 799-818 Document type article Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
