Editors: Darius Skusevich and Petras Matikas
Book Description:
There is no color without light, nor is there color perception without a sensory organ and brain to process visual input. This book discusses the complex impact of color action on the organism. It is shown that the perception of color depends on the action of irritants on other sensor systems and, vice versa, the action of color may exert exciting or inhibiting influence on the perception of sounds or smells. The mechanism of increasing realism of colored images is also discussed, as well as the epistemic role of color. Furthermore, this book examines whether there exist very large individual differences in the perception of color, and if so how these differences manifest themselves. Other chapters in this book discuss the role of visual processing in the regulation of adaptive behaviors, a review of image denoising, and the role of color in psychological functioning (i.e., the unconscious associations people have with color that could act as possible confounds).
