When we view natural images the colors we perceive are due to color information at every local patch of an image, rather than how colors interact when they transition from one point to another, according to a new study from researchers at City, University of London. The finding supports the role that color processing cells in the brain play when interpreting color, as previous it has been suggested that an effect called color ‘filling-in’ – in which the brain takes information at the edge between two colors and uses it to compute what the neighboring colors should be – influenced how we perceive colors in natural images.

Brain Awareness Week: Strategies for Each Life Stage
Happy Brain Awareness Week! If you could peek inside your brain at every birthday, you would see that it is constantly changing. Brain cells develop and disappear, the connections between them strengthen and weaken over time, even the size of the brain can change as the years go by. But keeping the brain in peak condition is something we tend to think about only at the beginning of life, the end of life, and when something goes wrong.
