Abstract

The present research tested semantic factors of colors affect natural scene memory. Particularly, we noticed diagnostic colors that mean highly predictive. Diagnostic color scenes were classified as the number of possible colorations that can be for each scene. It was defined as diagnostic color scenes had only a few colorations, while non-diagnostic color scenes had many options. We used natural scene pictures that highly occupied natural or man-made objects. Many of natural objects scenes were estimated as diagnostic color, while man-made objects scenes were non-diagnostic color scenes. Using these pictures, we execute a pair-comparison task that used blurred study images as study images in order to detect chromatic contrasts effectively. Diagnostic color scenes took more advantages of color information.
