HiCerebella, Thanks for that reply.J
Cerebella, are you positive about yellow? We were told, at university, that the eye is most sensitive to Green ( a secondary colour), least sensitive to Blue, but most sensitive, of the primary colours, to Red. Hence why emergency, rear, brake and stop lights are in red.

I will hold on for this one, the sites I have referred to seem to differ - one says red, blue and yellow primary colours and another red, green and blue??? I am clueless on this one!
red yellow and green are considered the primary colours with regard to pigment- ie you can make any other colour from a combination of two or three of them.
red green and blue are the primary colouts with regard to light- TVs for instance have three colour 'guns' producing these colours- again a combination of two or more will produce any other colour
I am fairly sure that the human eye is most sensitive to wavelengths that fall in the green-yellow part of the spectrum. I think red is used, not because of our visual sensitivity to it, but to the response we have to it on a more emotional lever.
4 isn't Chris Hoy, its Victoria Pendleton
At night, without artificial light, the eye with visual purple is least able to see, of all colours, blue.

sddsddean - Thank you so much for Victoria Pendleton J.
Slight error Burnhal. Red Yellow and Blue are primary pigments not green. You make green from yellow and blue. However, you are right that red, green and blue are primary colours of light.
Just in case you hadn't realised the mistake.
thanks Munden- had it right in my head but typed it out wrong!
