This chapter examines categorical colour perception and the nature of central processing of colour in a 33-year-old male with X-linked incomplete achromatopsia. Data from colour naming and categorization, colour contrast adaptation, and a battery of standard colour tests performed with and without a rod bleach, are presented. It is shown that despite colour deficiencies, the subject demonstrates consisted but shifted colour category and naming behaviour, while showing weak evidence for selectively tuned central chromatic mechanisms.

Keywords:   X-linked incomplete achromatopsia, colour vision, colour naming, colour categorization, colour perception
