Paper Abstract

The human visual system is central to imaging science. The idea of knowing the world through two-dimensional samples was borne from our sense of sight. The human visual system inspires our designs for sensors and algorithms. Yet much of what we consider to be imaging science is in the realm of psychology. Color, for example, is a mental interpretation of sensory data. Quantification of color requires psychophysical techniques to map physical stimuli to cognitive responses.
