Surface color perception in constrained environments

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (1):38-39 (2003)

Laurence Maloney

Byrne & Hilbert propose that color can be identified with explicit properties of physical surfaces. I argue that this claim must be qualified to take into account constraints needed to make recovery of surface color information possible. When these constraints are satisfied, then a biological visual system can establish a correspondence between perceived surface color and specific surface properties
