For the purposes of the Psychology Wiki some of these links should be deleted to leave only those of psychological interest. The criteria for the decision is - is there a psychological literature on this topic? If there is keep it - if not cut it.


Probably some Psychology Wiki articles on topics in optics are not yet listed on this page. If you cannot find the topic you are interested in on this page, the article may nonetheless exist; you can try to find it using the "Search" box, or look in Category:Optics and its subcategories. If you find that it exists, you can edit this page to add a link to it.

If you click on "Related changes" at the side of this page, you will see a list of the most recent changes in articles to which this page links. This page links to itself in order that changes to this page can be tracked by the same means.
