Paper Abstract

This paper will present a literature survey on the basic aspects of the possibilities for color presentation in the peripheral visual field and the results from some experiments from two laboratories in Japan and in Sweden. The method used was a color naming technique that included hue and saturation/chromaticness estimations of color stimuli of different eccentricity. In one laboratory, the size effect was also examined. Unique hue components of the stimuli were derived from the results of hue and saturation/chromaticness estimates. The results from the two laboratories showed similar tendency despite the differences in the experiments. The results showed that an increase of the retinal temporal eccentricity to 40 deg caused impaired color appearance especially for red and green colors. Smaller color stimuli, subtending 2 deg of visual angle, were perceived as less chromatic as larger color stimuli, subtending 6.5 deg of visual angle. The results are in line with some earlier studies showing that blue and yellow colors are better perceived than green and red in periphery.
