Illusion Of Skin Color When No Light?
Hello, what affects skin tone when viewed in low light? Simply put, when the bright light from the sun or lights on 2 different people, their skin looks the same color. However, when in low light, the colors are slightly different. Some look more gray, some are more orange or yellow. N nThank you.
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In order to interpret color, humans make use of cells called cone cells and stem cells, both of which are present in the retina, or structures at the back of the eye, as shown in the image below.
These cone cells and stem cells have different tasks, where the cone cells interpret color and play a role in vision when light is bright, and stem cells when the light is dim or tends to be dark. Furthermore, the number of these cells can also vary from person to person. Women were studied to have more cone cells than men, which made it easier for women to distinguish and name various colors than men in general.
This cell deficiency is also the basis of color blindness. Therefore, when two people interpret colors differently in low light conditions, it could be due to the sensitivity and different number of stem cells in each person, the characteristics of the stem cells themselves to provide less sharpness than conic cells, and knowledge. individual color. So, hopefully it answers your question.
