Simultaneous contrast and gamut relativity in achromatic color perception

  title={Simultaneous contrast and gamut relativity in achromatic color perception},
  author={Tony Vladusich},

Simultaneous contrast refers to the respective whitening or blackening of physically identical image regions surrounded by regions of low or high luminance, respectively. A common method of measuring the strength of this effect is achromatic color matching, in which subjects adjust the luminance of a target region to achieve an achromatic color match with another region. Here I present psychophysical data questioning the assumption--built into many models of achromatic color perception--that… CONTINUE READING
