Abstract

Some experiments on chromatic adaptation are reviewed. The adaptive color shifts due to changes of chromatic adaptation are interpreted as linear mappings. The results show that the special type of mappings known as the von Kries coefficient law does not generally hold. One conclusion is that the processes connected with chromatic adaptation cannot take place at the first retinal stage of the visual pathway alone, but also at higher stages.
