||Effective use of colours on visual display screens - Part 1
||Värinäytön suunnittelu: väri ja värinäkeminen [in Finnish]|
||1985, No.2, p.1-12. Illus. 6 ref.
||First of 2 articles devoted to this topic. Colour domination in the display of information has occurred so rapidly that the effective use of colour has not been considered thoroughly. From the ergonomic point of view, the use of colours requires knowledge about the physiology of colour vision - how the lens, the retina, and the brain react when light reaches the eye. It must also be remembered that a variety of visual deficiencies affect the perception of colour. The ergonomist has to know the perceptual aspects of colours - how colour is experienced. This perception of colour is also influenced by hue, lightness, saturation, and brightness.
