If you have a question about this talk, please contact John Mollon.

Although the colour spectrum is continuous, colour categories are present in both language (i.e., colour terms) and thought (e.g., categorical perception of colour). In this talk, I will outline a series of studies that investigate the origin of colour categories. The findings will be related to fundamental issues in the cognitive sciences such as: i) how and when categories form; ii) the relationship between categories in language and thought; and iii) how categories are expressed in the brain.
