This two-day conference will provide an interdisciplinary examination of the relationship between colour and form in visual perception, particularly (though not exclusively) in light of findings concerning cerebral achromatopsia or ‘cortical colour blindness’. The conference will bring together experts from cognitive neuropsychology and vision science with philosophers of mind and psychology who specialise in colour vision.
