Abstract

The processes responsible for color perception are accessible experimentally because of a wealth of genetic variations and because some components lend themselves to genetic manipulation. The addition of an opsin gene, as occurred in the evolution of color vision, and has been done experimentally produces expanded capacities providing insight into the neural circuitry.
