NEUTRAL POINT

is the parameter at which a single wavelength of visible light appears uncoloured, either showing as white or grey to an individual with dichromatism. The colour visible will depend on the level of vision the participant has and will change according to the umber of cone photopigments available.

NEUTRAL POINT: "The point at which a single visible wavelength of light then appears uncoloured is called the neutral point."
