ACCORDING to Helmholtz's theory of colour vision, luminosity is caused by the summed excitations of the three kinds of receptors. Granit1, however, suggests that the luminosity is caused by a special type of receptor, the dominators, whereas the other (two) types (the modulators) only give the colour to the observed objects.
