Frequently Asked Questions
The opponent process theory explains how our brains process and interpret colors in pairs of opposing channels: red vs. green, blue vs. yellow, and black vs. white. When one color in a pair is activated, the other is suppressed, contributing to the richness of our visual experiences.
The trichromatic theory proposes that our eyes have three types of photoreceptors, sensitive to red, green, and blue wavelengths of light. By combining the signals from these cones, our brain can perceive a vast spectrum of colors, forming the basis of our color perception.
