A study on Memory Colours
  DOI :  10.2352/issn.2169-2629.2021.29.362  Published OnlineNovember 2021

Memory colour has generated a sustained interest in the colour world. Previous studies mainly focused on the reflection colour chips and colour samples on real scenes or displays. Less attention was paid to the specific attributes of memory colour. In this paper, the forced choice psychophysical experiment method was used to study the preference, the colourfulness and the naturalness memory colours of 29 familiar objects on mobile displays by Chinese observers. The experiment collected the memory colours data and the representative memory colour was specified by CIELAB L*, a*, b* value. The intra-observer and inter-observer variations were analyzed by mean colour difference from the mean values, which was compared with other similar studies. An ellipsoid model was established to represent results in terms of memory colour centre and colour range in CIELAB a* b* space. At the same time, the results of this experiment were compared with those of previous experiments.
