About terms

A family of closely related terms underpins all the content at lightcolourvision.org and we aim for accuracy and consistency of usage as we demonstrate the connections between light, colour and vision.

We want our resources to be accessible to a general readership of students, teachers and researchers of all ages who want to build on their existing knowledge one step at a time.

Each term has its own page in the REFERENCES section and starts with a brief definition. Bullet points follow that provide context and add detail.

Links embedded in the text of RESOURCES pages link to the REFERENCES section.

Shorter summaries also appear on RESOURCES pages under the heading SOME KEY TERMS. These summaries provide a quick reference stripped down to basics.
