We perceive a seemingly enormous variety of hues, yet the first stage of human colour vision is relatively simple. Phototransduction within the three types of cone photoreceptor means that colour matches are defined by just three numbers. Yet, despite the underlying simplicity of the underlying cone signals, the colours we perceive depend on many other factors, including individual differences, the influence of surrounding colours and cognitive factors.
