An anchoring theory of lightness perception.
A review of the field of lightness perception from Helmholtz to the present shows the most adequate theories of lightness perception to be the intrinsic image models. Nevertheless, these models failExpand
An anchoring theory of lightness perception.
TLDR
The new model, which is based on a combination of local and global anchoring of lightness values, appears to provide an unprecedented account of a wide range of empirical results, both classical and recent, especially the pattern of errors. Expand
A functional angle on some after-effects in cortical vision
TLDR
This work puts forward an explanation of the tilt after–effect in terms of a functional role for adaptation in the visual cortex, and discusses the implications of the model for understanding the effects of adaptation and surround stimulation on the response properties of cortical neurons. Expand
Dynamics of collinear contrast facilitation are consistent with long-range horizontal striate transmission
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the minimum exposure duration required to induce facilitation increases monotonically with greater target-flanker separation, and dynamics strongly suggest that contrast facilitation is mediated via long-range horizontal striate connections. Expand
Universal aesthetic of fractals
TLDR
It is shown that humans display a consistent aesthetic preference across fractal images, regardless of whether these images are generated by nature's processes, by mathematics, or by the human hand. Expand
The Foveal Confluence in Human Visual Cortex
TLDR
It is found that V1, V2, and V3 are separable right into the center of the foveal confluence, andV1 ends as a rounded wedge with an affine mapping of thefoveal singularity, indicating that more neuronal processing power is dedicated to second-level analysis in this small but important part of the visual field.

Perceptual and Physiological Responses to Jackson Pollock's Fractals
TLDR
A review of 10 years of scientific investigation of human response to fractals that examines the inter-relationship between the various results and discusses the artistic implications of the positive perceptual and physiological responses to fractal patterns. Expand
Lightness, brightness, and brightness contrast: 1. Illuminance variation
TLDR
The authors' subjects matched the apparent amounts of light coming from the patches, their apparent reflectances, or the brightness differences between the patches and their surrounds (brightness contrasts), which produced quantitatively different results. Expand
Modeling Magnification and Anisotropy in the Primate Foveal Confluence
TLDR
The nature of anisotropy predicted by existing models is mapped, the optimization targets faced by different types of retino-cortical maps are investigated, and a novel map is proposed that better models empirical data than other candidates are proposed. Expand
Lightness, brightness, and brightness contrast: 2. Reflectance variation
TLDR
Changes of annulus luminance in traditional disk-and-annulus patterns can be perceived to be either reflectance or illuminance changes, and the effect of varying annulus reflectance is examined. Expand
