Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to clarify several issues in infant color vision that, despite previous reviews in this journal, remain in dispute. We argue that the data are still insufficient to conclude that 2-3-month-old infants are adult-like trichromats, but they are at least dichromats. How closely infant hue perception parallels adult hue perception cannot be discerned from existing data.
