Human newborn color vision: measurement with chromatic stimuli varying in excitation purity.
TLDR
These saturation discrimination data (with the exception of the yellow data), provide some support for an expanded MacAdam ellipse model of early color discrimination and reinforce the current view that neonates' vision is based on general rather than selective immaturities or inefficiencies within the requisite optical, photoreceptoral and neural mechanisms.

Alone in the dark? Modeling the conditions for visual experience in human fetuses
TLDR
Results indicate that at least some fetuses can be predicted to develop in conditions allowing for ample visual experience before birth, which could have intriguing implications for the ontogeny of early visuo-motor abilities in newborns and infants.
Infant Visual Perception
TLDR
It is argued that there is a consistent overall picture emerging from research: Visual perception depends heavily on inborn and early maturing mechanisms, although evidence also suggests roles for learning, especially in calibration and tuning.

The present paper constitutes a review of the literature on young infants’ chromatic discrimination capabilities. A series of early studies showed that infants as young as two months postnatal can
New evidence for infant colour categories
TLDR
It is reported that pre-linguistic infants perceive colour categorically for primary boundaries and this study was extended to include secondary boundaries, with a crucial modification: the separations between habituated and novel stimuli were equated in a perceptually uniform metric (Munsell), rather than in wavelength.

Contrast/Color Card Procedure: A New Test of Young Infants' Color Vision
TLDR
Results showed that 3- month-olds had little difficulty making any of the chromatic- achromatic discriminations but many 2-month-olds appeared to fail to discriminate the yellow and green from the background at relative luminances close to an adult brightness match.

TLDR
It is suggested that rod-initiated signals play a major role in infants' visual performance under the conditions tested, and this curve agreed with both the adult heterochromatic brightness matches measured at 30 degrees of visual eccentricity in situ and the standard adult scotopic sensitivity curve V(lambda) over the short- and mid-wavelength range.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that preneural mechanisms constrain chromatic discrimination in human neonates and that discrimination failures may reflect poor visual efficiency rather than immature chromatic mechanisms per se.
