Color categories and biology: Considerations from molecular genetics, neurobiology, and evolutionary theory

  • Stephen L. Zegura (a1)
    • Published online: 01 June 1997

Evidence from molecular genetics bolsters the claim that color is not a perceptuolinguistic and behavioral universal. Neurobiology continues to fill in many details about the flow of color information from photon reception to central processing in the brain. Humans have the most acute color vision in the biosphere because of natural selection and adaptation, not coincidence.
