Colors, brain and immateriality
Andrea Bucci & Paolo Bartolomeo Pascolo
The hypothesis we present in this paper is about the representation of colours in the nervous system as metaphysical and immaterial properties of the neural activations, first in the lateral geniculate body and following in the primary visual cortex, where the colours are not directly coded but whose representation is modulated by a signal born by fewer neurons. 
The metaphysical background of this hypothesis is the dualism of properties that will be discussed in the last paragraph of this article.
