Does the visual system allocate discriminative ability to different regions in colour space in a way that optimizes discrimination among natural colours? If so, discrimination should satisfy a " cube root rule " : in an optimized system differential sensitivity will be greatest for the most commonly encountered conditions, dropping to half its maximum under conditions of relative frequency 1/8. Quantitatively, this principle is only very roughly consistent with psychophysical data, but it does… CONTINUE READING
