HUE-WAVELENGTH RELATION MEASURED BY COLOR-NAMING METHOD FOR THREE RETINAL LOCATIONS.

Abstract

A method of hue measurement, in which an absolute color-naming procedure is utilized, has been applied to spectral stimuli delivered as flashes at 0 degrees, 20 degrees, and 40 degrees eccentricity in an otherwise dark field. The method yields very reliable measures, especially at 0 degrees. Color-naming at 0 degrees differs little from that at 20 degrees, but a marked deterioration of performance occurs between 20 and 40 degrees. This is reflected by a reduction in red and especially green responses, and a lower reliability of the measurements. Additional estimates were also obtained which showed a decrease in measured saturation but increasing reliability of the saturation measurements with increasing eccentricity.
