Does anyone know anything at all about what neurons and neurological
pathways in the brain gets activated by seeing different colors like
red, blue, green etc. Does the intensity matter and the exact frquency
etc. or is it the same within a certain range of intensities and
frquencies. And what are the differences between different species in
this respect. Any information on this would be greatly appriciated as I
am planning a project where this is involved at a later stage. Any links
with color vision and evolution is also interesting.

Is there done any research on this field and what text books can I get
to cover this?
