Seeing in colour


Journal Article

Understanding perception of colour is challenging because what we see is not always what is there, which is a phenomenon we call illusions. Here we review the nature of colour vision, and the problems facing most current models and explanations. Focusing on our recent research on humans, bees and computers, we describe a new, more ecologically based explanation that provides a clear framework for why we see what we do. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
