A Dress Rehearsal for Vision Science
JOV special collection
In late February and early March 2015, an image of a dress circulated widely on the internet. Different people saw very different colors in the dress (white-gold, blue-black, and blue-brown were among the most commonly reported); some reported that the colors changed from time to time with continued viewing.
What can we learn from this particular image? To what extent can we predict what individuals will see given known individual differences in color vision? Which aspects of the spatial and spectral structure of the image contribute to the phenomena? This special collection will feature papers on these and related topics. Papers will be added as they are published.
