By Jun-ichi Nagai & Kazuhiko Yokosawa

1.1 Summary

Tanaka and Presnell (1999) research claimed object recognition is related to degree of the specific color and high density color play an important role in object recognition.

The researchers presented two experiments for object recognition study. Using high color density (HCD) and low color density (LCD) object for the study. This study was conducted in a Japan university from Meiji Gakuin University.
