Colour tuning in human visual cortex measured with functional magnetic resonance imaging

  title={Colour tuning in human visual cortex measured with functional magnetic resonance imaging},
  author={Stephen Engel and Xuemei M. Zhang and Brian Wandell},
The primate retina contains three classes of cones, the L, M and S cones, which respond preferentially to long-, middle- and short-wavelength visible light, respectively. Colour appearance results from neural processing of these cone signals within the retina and the brain. Perceptual experiments have identified three types of neural pathways that represent colour: a red–green pathway that signals differences between L- and M-cone responses; a blue–yellow pathway that signals differences… CONTINUE READING
