Photoreceptor spectral sensitivities and color correction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Lythgoe (1979) reviews evidence that photoreceptor spectral sensitivities in certain species are matched to the animal's environment. The possibility that photoreceptors are chosen to optimize visual performances leads to the question, what choices of photoreceptor spectral sensitivities are best for various visual tasks? In this paper I review and critique previous work concerning optimal choices of receptors for certain color vision tasks.
