That probably has a basis in psychology or neurology, not in the workings of the eye.

You get a similar effect with a yellow colored box/banner on a computer display: while its less bright then a white area, it does stand out more when looking at the overal picture.

Green is brighter, mostly because even your chinese junk pointer will be several times the power of a yellow pointer.

Default Re: Yellow versus Green - Which color is more visible to the eye?

Your brain probably interprets yellow/white etc. as brighter because in the context of multi-wavelength light sources, the yellow/white will be a combination of green and other wavelengths overlapping. Their combined power produces a brighter light than any of the individual wavelengths.

In terms of pure wavelength and power, the green will be brighter than yellow, centering around 555nm.
