  • Look Inside

 In recent physiological studies of color vision in monkeys, there is a tendency that neural responses or animal behavior is characterized by using visual stimuli based on the color space derived from human color psychophysics. Several advantages exist in this method. Firstly, by means of mapping neuralresponses in the color space, we can directly correlate neuron activities with color perception. As an example of such an attempt, we have studied color selectivity of neurons in the inferior temporal (IT) cortex of the monkey by mapping neural responses on the CIExy chromaticity diagram.
