Visual projection systems. The primary visual pathway is the retina-lateral geniculate-striate cortex pathway. It is responsible for detection of form, movement, and color. Other visual pathways. To the SCN of hypothalamus
Receptors across an edge
show the greatest difference
The receptor on the brighter
side of an edge is inhibited
by fewer neighbors, while
the receptor on the darker
side is inhibited by more.
- the larger receptive field
- no subdivision on-off
When a composite of Mondrians is bathed in
colored light, the perceived colors remain
Two differently-colored Mondrians can be
bathed in colored light so that they reflect
the exact same wavelengths (white).
If the Mondrians reflecting the composite
white light are seen alone, that is, with no
background, they appear white.
However, if they are seen in the context of
the larger Mondrian composite, they retain
their original colors.
