Much is known about color vision in infants, adolescents, and adults, but very few studies report the changes, which occur in color perception of children in their early schooling years. There is also a shortage of suitable color vision tests for children. This study investigated the changes in color vision of school students between 5-12 years old using(More)
It has been found that humans are able to distinguish colours without luminance cues by about 2-4 months of age and that sensitivity to colour difference develops during childhood, reaching a peak around adolescence. This prolonged period of maturation is reflected by improvements in psychophysical threshold measures and by the VEP characteristics of(More)
The hypotheses of a visual basis to reading disabilities in some children have centered around deficits in the visual processes displaying more transient responses to stimuli although hyperactivity in the visual processes displaying sustained responses to stimuli has also been proposed as a mechanism. In addition, there is clear evidence that colored lenses(More)
Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) may be analyzed by examination of the morphology of their components, such as negative (N) and positive (P) peaks. However, methods that rely on component identification may be unreliable when dealing with responses of complex and variable morphology; therefore, objective methods are also useful. One potentially useful(More)
We investigated the effect of color-vision deficiency on reaction times and accuracy of identification of traffic light signals. Participants were 20 color-normal and 49 color-deficient males, the latter divided into subgroups of different severity and type. Participants performed a tracking task. At random intervals, stimuli simulating standard traffic(More)
PURPOSE The importance of testing children's color vision, particularly to identify color vision deficiencies at an early age, has long been agreed on by teachers and color vision researchers and healthcare workers. The classic color vision tests were not necessarily developed for children's cognitive abilities, even though they are commonly used to assess(More)
Measures of chromatic contrast sensitivity in children are lower than those of adults. This may be related to immaturities in signal processing at or near threshold. We have found that children's VEPs in response to low contrast supra-threshold chromatic stimuli are more intra-individually variable than those recorded from adults. Here, we report on linear(More)
