Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Smart devices are becoming increasingly important these years and human beings spent more and more time on electronic screen Screen acts as a input and output interface at the same time use of color on screen become a important topic too There are two experiments in this study the first experiment records the reaction time of participants before color adaptation the second experiment records the reaction time of the same task after color adaptation Color samples used in this study include three primary colors and three complex colors size of the stimulus shown in the experiments was controlled to allow the participants can just discriminate Results of experiments show that the average reaction time after color adap-tation is better than before color adaptation Background color of Blue has the best performance at all time Except the first time point after color adaptation has the slowest reaction time the rest of them has non-significant difference in between In other words human’s visual ability reached a steady level after a very short time period The results of this study can be applied on user interface design
