Color Evoked Potentials in Adults and Infants.
White, Carroll T.; And Others
This paper discusses recent studies of the adult visual evoked potential (VEP) which have indicated that specific components of the complex waveform obtained are related to the three basic color processes, and that these components interact in ways that seem to agree with opponent-colors phenomena. The components identified as being related to the three processes have time characteristics comparable to the relative time courses of the perceptual color responses, with red being the fastest, followed by green, and blue being the slowest to develop. In a study now in progress these techniques are being applied to a group of term infants. Preliminary results are discussed briefly. Findings seem to indicate that the technique evolved for the study of color in the normal adult can also be used for all age levels--thus to be possibly a valuable way of monitoring the development of color vision in the child.
