Abstract
Assuming that the photoreceptor response of the
human visual system is adaptive and non-linear, we can
derive mathematical properties that can account for both
color discrimination and chromatic adaptation. This
could be due to the photoreceptors' response to
illumination, which is non-linear and varies according to
the adaptation state. Assuming the Naka-Rushton non-
linear function and an automatic gain control function,
we can derive color discrimination and chromatic
adaptation data. We extend the discussion to a three-
layer model of retinal color processing, and show how
we could predict corresponding color data.
