    • Category training affects colour discrimination but only in the right visual field 

      Drivonikou G.; Clifford A.; Franklin A.; Özgen E.; Davies I.R. L. (John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2011)
      There is indirect evidence that categorical colour perception (better discrimination of colours from different categories than those from the same category) can be learned. For instance, CP can be induced across a newly ...
