Our aim was to characterise the chromatic mechanisms that yield the four unique hues: red, green, yellow and blue. We measured the null planes for all four unique hues and report the following two main results. (1) We confirm that three chromatic mechanisms are required to account for the four unique hues. These three chromatic mechanisms do not coincide with the chromatic tuning found in parvocellular LGN neurones, i.e., neurones tuned to L-M and S-(L+M); these subcortical chromatic mechanisms… Expand

Cone Photoreceptor Sensitivities and Unique Hue Chromatic Responses: Correlation and Causation Imply the Physiological Basis of Unique Hues
TLDR
The three cone sensitivity curves and the three spectral chromatic response curves are almost identical sets in peak wavelengths, curve shapes, math functions, and curve crossover wavelengths, though previously unrecognized due to presentation of curves in different formats, e.g., log, linear. Expand
Colour‐opponent mechanisms are not affected by age‐related chromatic sensitivity changes
TLDR
A significant decrease in chromatic sensitivity due to ageing is found, in particular along the tritan line, which provides evidence in favour of the hypothesis that higher‐order colour mechanisms are equipped with flexible cone weightings, as opposed to fixed weights. Expand
A neural signature of the unique hues
TLDR
A neural signature of the unique hues is found 230 ms after stimulus onset at a post-perceptual stage of visual processing, and the posterior P2 component over the parieto-occipital lobe peaked significantly earlier for the unique than for the intermediate hues. Expand
Multiplicative modulations enhance diversity of hue-selective cells
TLDR
A hierarchical model inspired by the neuronal mechanisms in the brain for local hue representation is proposed, which reveals the contributions of each visual cortical area in hue representation and indicates that multiplicative modulations have significant contributions in encoding of hues along intermediate directions in the MacLeod-Boynton diagram. Expand
Decoding of EEG signals reveals non-uniformities in the neural geometry of colour
TLDR
This work uses a spatiotemporal decoding approach to reconstruct an activation space for a set of unique and intermediate hues across a range of luminance values and shows pivotal non-uniformities which suggest that anisotropies in neurometric hue-spaces are likely to represent perceptual unique hues. Expand
The relationship between peripherally matched invariant hues and unique hues: a cone-contrast approach.
TLDR
It is found that the difference between cone contrasts for the peripheral and central stimuli reaches a maximum at the chromatic axis corresponding to peripherally invariant green, which is linked to a weakened signal from M-cones and probably associated with a reduced number of M- Cones in peripheral retina. Expand
Multiplicative modulations in hue-selective cells enhance unique hue representation
TLDR
A hierarchical model inspired by the neuronal mechanisms in the brain for local hue representation is proposed, which reveals the contributions of each visual cortical area in hue representation and indicates that model V4 neurons have the capacity to encode unique hues. Expand
Chromatic Detection and Discrimination
A traditional model of color detection and discrimination is based upon two opponent and one non-opponent combination of cone signals, called red–green, blue–yellow, and achromatic Mechanisms. ThisExpand

TLDR
The results suggest that the neural representations underlying unique hue percepts are influenced by the same neural processing mechanisms as the percepts of other colors. Expand
Color perception and compensation in color deficiencies assessed with hue scaling
TLDR
While the compensation was pronounced it was nevertheless partial, and anomalous observers differed systematically from the controls in the shapes of the hue-scaling functions and the corresponding loci of their color categories, the implications for understanding both the processes of compensation for a color deficiency and the limits of these processes are discussed.

Opponent chromatic mechanisms: relation to photopigments and hue naming.
TLDR
The results showed that the hue scaling was accurately predicted from the cancellation functions using the model of Hurvich and Jameson, and good linear fits were obtained for each observer's red-green curve, but not for the yellow-blue curves. Expand
Variations in normal color vision. II. Unique hues.
TLDR
No relationship was found between hue settings and relative sensitivity to the LvsM and SvsLM axes, which suggests that the perceived hue for moderately saturated equiluminant stimuli does not depend on fixed physiological weightings of the cone-opponent axes or on fixed color signals in the environment.

Using a hue scaling technique, we have examined the appearance of colored spots produced by shifts from white to isoluminant stimuli along various color vectors in order to examine color appearanceExpand
Towards a spatio-chromatic standard observer for detection
TLDR
The aim of the ColorFest is to build a spatio-chromatic standard observer for the detection of static coloured images and estimates the chromatic tuning improves the model fit for one observer. Expand

TLDR
The results are consistent with the hypothesis that with advancing age there is a parallel decline in the input of all three cone types to the red-green chromatic channel and either a selective decline in short-wave-sensitive cone input to the yellow-blue chromatic channels or a change in the way in which cone signals are combined within theyellow-blue channel.

Chromatic mechanisms in lateral geniculate nucleus of macaque.
TLDR
This paper introduces a new technique for the analysis of the chromatic properties of neurones, and applies it to cells in the lateral geniculate nucleus (l.g.n.) of macaque by exploiting the fact that for any cell that combines linearly the signals from cones there is a restricted set of lights that can be exchanged for one another without evoking a response. Expand
Chromatic mechanisms in striate cortex of macaque
TLDR
Most cortical neurons preferred modulation along vectors lying close to the achromatic axis and those showing overt chromatic opponency did not fall into the clearly defined chromatic groups seen in l.g.n. Expand
Insights into the different exploits of colour in the visual cortex
TLDR
The results suggest that chromatic signals are processed independently to generate perceived object colour or to construct spatially structured objects, and that these functions involve different neural substrates. Expand

An opponent-process theory of color vision.
TLDR
Throughout some hundred years since the original formulation of the idea, a continued series of attempts has been made to find the proper transformation of the three measured colormixture curves that will bridge the gap and yield the unique spectral distribution curves of the desired physiological correlates of theThree postulated "fundamental" color sensations.
