A landmark study conducted by Berlin and Kay (Basic Color Terms, University of California Press, Berkeley, 1969, pp. 1-12) demonstrates that well-developed languages contain exactly 11 basic color terms. The basic colors (8 chromatic and 3 achromatic) are situated in specific locations of color space, suggesting a fixed relationship between specific hue and luminance. To determine the physiologic origins of the basic colors, we have studied the responses of cells in visual cortical areas V1, V2… CONTINUE READING
