Color improves object recognition in normal and low vision
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance
Does color improve object recognition? If so, is the improvement greater for images with low spatial resolution in which there is less shape information? Do people with low visual acuity benefit more from color? Three experiments measured reaction time (RT) and accuracy for naming food objects displayed in 4 types of images: gray scale or color, and high or low spatial resolution (produced by blur). Normally sighted Ss had faster RTs with color, but the improvement was not significantly greaterdoi:10.1037/0096-1518.104.22.1689 fatcat:ft26kr4gizce5mksfj26pb3zty
