Abstract

A test of color memory has been developed using chips from the Farnsworth-Munsell hue series. An individual is asked to select from a hue-circle of color samples the one which most resembles a test sample presented a short time before. This procedure is repeated for a number of test samples so that the observer can be reliably scored on a basis of demonstrated accuracy.
