The Symmetry of Visual Fields in Chromatic Discrimination
Danilova, M. V.; Mollon, J. D.
Brain and Cognition, v69 n1 p39-46 Feb 2009
Both classical and recent reports suggest a right-hemisphere superiority for color discrimination. Testing highly-trained normal subjects and taking care to eliminate asymmetries from the testing situation, we found no significant differences between left and right hemifields or between upper and lower hemifields. This was the case for both of the cardinal axes of color space. In addition, there was no difference according to whether the discriminanda were delivered to the same or to different hemispheres, and we note that the same number of synapses may lie between the retina and the site of comparison whether or not the stimuli are delivered to the same hemisphere. (Contains 5 figures.)
