Shades of gray: Rutgers-Camden researcher studies how brain perceives color

    An assistant-professor of psychology at Rutgers-Camden has teamed up with psychologists from the University of Pennsylvania on groundbreaking research that examines how the brain perceives color.

    The Gloucester County Times reports the group of researchers is studying how the brain is able to identify colors even as lighting conditions change.

    Assistant-professor Sarah Allred conducted the research with Alan L. Gilchrist, a professor of psychology at Rutgers-Newark. The two worked along with two others from the University of Pennsylvania, Professor David H. Brainard and post-doctoral fellow Ana Radonjic.

    Their research is expected to be published in the journal of Current Biology, according to the Gloucester County Times.
